What is Art?



What the heck is art, anyway? I just know what I like. And I know it when I see it. My very much an artist friend Leigh kindly sent this my way. What do you think art is?

I love that little film!

I think art is anything humans create purposefully to express something human within themselves. That leaves it pretty wide open, doesn't it?

Classic! I had to send the video link to my college roommate. She had this exact question for a homework assignment...we had the sillies one night and went off on a riff because her father's name is Art. This would have sent us into hysterics for hours that night.

Ah! This is so great! What a cute movie. I love trying to imagine the people who really said those things and then picturing them as hamsters. So clever this is.

Thorsten and I loved this, we both crammed over my desk to view it here, thanks for posting this. Oh yes the age old question - What is Art?

I was just flicking through my November "Real Living" mag again, and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed visiting your home - it has such a wonderful spirit!

And, I have to agree with Carlene, I reckon, art is something that starts on the inside and explodes, leaks, or worms it way out to the outside.

Too awesome and SO appropriate for my mind right now! Thanks, V!
