What Is Art?

I can't pretend to answer that question in a way that would satisfy anybody.

I'm not even certain there was an artful way to combine a cow and shoes, but surely someone might've come closer than this.

What I found especially odd was that the same artist who slapped together this shoddy mess also pieced together the witty, captivatingly beautiful Pasture Bedtime.

Maybe it's a pointed commentary on the perils of corporate sponsorship? (This one was sponsored by Famous Footware.)

art is what YOU like ... done WELL

Now that's an odd coincidence ... my definition of art has long been "accomplishing any task exceptionally well." I guess that would necessarily be subjective, but I have a hard time seeing how the likes of Tracey Emin would ever satisfy that definition for anybody.
