The difference is that standards were more widely understood and reflected
the tastes of the culture. Also, a piece of art was considered to be a
functional object, not merely individual expression.

Individual should certainly be free to express themselves in any way they
choose short of making themselves a public nuisance, but it should be done
on their own nickel.
