Whatever is pleasing to the eye, feel, or taste.

So is this The Ljw's thinly veiled way of asking "Do you think the art at this event is really art?"

Well, yes I do, but some of it is probably more about the process than to what degree it can be considered art.

The Garden of Eden is mostly concrete. As for Indyan, He is 100% full blooded Sioux Quartzite.

Glad me and Indyan ain't doves. Come to think of it, we're more like lovebirds now that we're hitched.

OBAMA four more years !!!!!!!!!!!!

Humans need art, it has been around since day one ( and please do not take that literally). In the 1100's and later, Native Americans were putting lovely designs on pots and baskets. Now, these were to be used for cooking and carrying so obviously they did not need to look beautiful, yet someone felt the need to do so. Which of us is going to create something that others will look at eight hundred years from now and get meaning from? I like the wood sculpture at the southeast corner of 12th and Mass. It makes me think of The Bridge to Terribithia.

Why am I hungry for potato chips now?

I define things with a dictionary....preferably Websters.

I like design and color more than pure art. So I tend to draw to collections and color themes.

An infinite number of ways. Trump defines it as the art of the deal. I would redefine his art as parasitical pomposity. My favorite is the art of the written word. There are a number of accomplished artists here on OTS.
