Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

One of my Art History professors gave us a tautological argument to describe art that always stuck with me: "Art is what the artist creates." When we asked what makes one an artist, he just laughed and said, "How should I know?"

I wouldn't choose "Anything", although it's the closest. I'll just say that Art is Everything.

Yes, that had a double-meaning.

Art is something that brings beauty to the world, or something that makes people think, thoughtfully. Ehm. It's complicated. Very complicated.

...emotional. If you have an emotional reaction (good or bad) to observing something then it is probably art. If you don't have an emotional response, then it probably isn't art to you.

Art is what the artist creates. It is perceived as either an epic creation or an epic failure, usually by others who have trouble drawing stick figures.

I would say it's subjective. To both the creator and the viewer.

big thick fatty piece of prime rib with taters cooked in the meat fat under the roast, garlic bread with tons of butter and garlic

oh, are you talking about that other art like paintings and stuff - if so anything that is totally useless - if its functional it ain't art

So politicians, lawyers and vegan cooking are art?
