In the eye of the beholder
Everyone has their own idea of what is and isn't art. Sometimes I see something in a museum and wonder why, and sometimes I see something in a museum and just love it. I love paintings and clothing exhibits. Depending on the models, I like miniatures, too. I love mini-recreations of historic buildings and scenery, and dioramas that show how people lived. Things like that fire my imagination and being the visual person that I am, I can write a story about something like that in no time.

But, art is more than the mediums I prefer. Music is art. Dance is art. Movies are art. Books are art. Even sports can be art. It is all in the way we view life. For some people - life is art.

So, on this Fat Tuesday, I salute ALL artists, wherever they are and whatever they do. This world needs them.

This Day in History: On February 20, 1872, what well known art museum opened its doors for the first time?

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

I think that book covers are a work of art, also.

You're right, robyn, on both counts. Although it may not convince me to buy the book, a good book cover will entice me to pick it up and take a look.

The Met is one of the places I plan to visit someday - unfortunately not soon.
