Most dictionaries define art as, "The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power."

How do YOU define art? Does it have anything to do with the medium you use to express it?

Does it even matter how we define or label it? :smile:

Guess art is everything that express feelings. When someone dance, you are not only seeing his/her dance, but also his/her hardwork, dedication, dicipline, good or bad mood, lot of things. The same goes with music, or any drawing/painting.

When I can see any feeling through an action or object, that is art for me.

Sit atop of a of a small mountain that sits in the middle of a southwestern desert just before the first light begins to peek out. Now watch as the sun begins to rise. The sky begins to turn to a reddish glow and slowly builds to fiery reds, oranges and yellows as shadow begin to appear from the plants and out crops of rocks then a fiery silhouette appears around all dark objects in view plastered against the back drop of the colored sky.

That is Art.

Yup I've seen this. Many times. Az is my home. I'll head out to the desert or a lake on my bike maybe 3am in the summer and watch the sun come up. I'll do the same in the evening and watch the sun go down. Ether way this picture doesn't the reality justice. But what does. :wink:

Then you know what I'm talking about. I live in Phoenix (big filthy crime infested place) It takes me about 30 minutes to an hour to get to anyplace with a good view. Now we do have South Mountain. The view is pretty good up there. The shock is though that even from up there you can't see an end to the city in all directions.:unhappy:
