Re: Is Fine Arts or Visual Arts or Art?

I thought this whole question was a thing of the past!
Any one who has gone through a school of Art in the last fifty or so years
should be pretty comfortable with bringing all the "Arts" into the same tent.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of the Arts in
I am a Silversmith and an Elementary Art Teacher and have taught at the
College level as well. My work has been exhibited internationally. I have received
grants from state Arts organizations. I have had work exhibited in galleries
and museums.
In my mind the lines between art and craft and design are meaningless at this
