Please see Bunki's note to Terry - and then we have -

And so the question is: what is art?
Oh wait, that was last week.
I looked it up last week. The American Heritage - "1. Human effort to
imitate, supplement, alter, or counteract" (thanks for narrowing it down)
"the work of nature. 2. The conscious production or arrangement of sounds,
colors, forms, movements or other elements that affects the sense of BEAUTY,
the production of the beacutiful in a graphic or plastic medium. 3. High
quality of conception or execution...."

So I looked up beauty - "A pleasing quality... often UNSPECIFIABLE."
Right back to the beginning!!

Gee, I would expect more from a dictionary. SIGH.
