Once when asked what Trans-Siberian Orchestra was about, Paul O'Neill replied, "It's about creating great art. When asked to define what great art was, Paul said, "The purpose of art is to create an emotional response in the person that is exposed to that art. And there are three categories of art; bad art, good art and great art. Bad art will elicit no emotional response in the person that is exposed to it, i.e.; a song you hear in an elevator and it does nothing to you, a picture on a wall that gives you the same emotional response as if the wall had been blank, a movie that chews up time. Good art will make you feel an emotion that you have felt before; you see a picture of a forest and you remember the last time you went fishing with your dad, you hear a song about love and you remember the last time you were in love. Great art will make you feel an emotion you have never felt before; seeing the pieta, the world famous sculpture by Michelangelo, can cause someone to feel the pain of losing a child even if they've never had one. And when you're trying for these emotions the easiest one to trigger is anger. Anyone can do it. Go into the street, throw a rock at someone, you will make them angry. The emotions of love, empathy and laughter are much harder to trigger, but since they operate on a deeper level, they bring a much greater reward.

Any one of the Divine Languages, including painting, sculpting, music, theatre, dance, poetry, etc.
When we speak a divine language, we are able to say things that we couldn't say in normal conversation. That is art.

Any form of human self expression, creatively in the attempt achieving reactions amongst the senses or feelings or emotions. It can also be complex works of literature,music,paintings and sculptures,etc In where a deep message or meaning can be found Art is almost anything that humans do and doesn't have to be the pompous crap that most people defining the term on this site say it is.good art is like beauty and based on the beholder.It can be simple, it is all to appeal to people of many personality types.
Lady gaga is an artist, she intrigues me with her catchy music and avant garde fashion.I feel a sense of belonging because she is so strange, she tells me(and her fans) that iam not the only one of who likes strange tastes.

Any attempt to define art is an attempt to destroy it. No laws can define it. No medium can contain it. Not old idea or imitation survives. Art creates its own laws, ones of revolution and change. Art bears witness time and time again to the rebirth of itself. Art translates the language of the human experience because ART IS.
the plethora of sensory creations created by man. that is art.
