    What is art?

    What is the nature of art? My definition (I've given this before) is that art exists for its own sake and for the purpose of enjoyment

    Re: What is art?

    Art is a highly diverse range of human activities engaged in creating visual, auditory, or performed artifacts— artworks — that express the author’s imaginative or technical skill, and are intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.

    The oldest documented forms of art are visual arts on, which include images or objects in fields like painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential, in a way that they usually are not in another visual art, like a painting.
