1. Art is made by a human being.
2. Art is created to have an impact, to change someone else.
3. Art is a gift. You can sell the souvenir, the canvas, the recording…but the idea itself is free, and the generosity is a critical part of making art.
By my definition, most art has nothing to do with oil paint, or marble. Art is what we’re doing when we do our best work.
