What is Art?

While looking through my old blogs it dawned on me that I never really researched into what is Art.  Here I have stumble across "What is Art?" by Shelley Essak through google.  Essak quite the humorous. I found myself chuckling more than a few times reading her thought on this subject.

I especially like her unrelated reference to students such as myself who have decided to google the answer (last minute of course).

There are also some great facts in her article about what art is...

""Art is form and content" means: All art consists of these two things.

Form means (1) the elements of art, (2) the principles of design and (3) the actual, physical materials that the artist has used. " (Shelley Essak 2010)

So again with my argument that Fashion is and can be consider ART!  ;)

Why has it taken so long for everyone else to catch onto this concept?

Attached are some great examples of Fashion/Art. (coming soon)

  1. 'Art' is not one thing or piece/painting,sculpture, etc... its purpose is to transform and ignite imagination, making or taking the viewer to another place.
