Good Art, Bad Art, Not Art-Who Gets The Last Word?

posted Feb 26, 2014, 11:01 AM by Jared Libby
      I am a creative artist who developed some music skills. I create pieces of music "culture". Creative artists need consumers of their creations. Consumers need the creations artists produce. Neither of these roles is more important than the other.
      A piece of art doesn't depend upon somebody's opinion or a group's consensus on its quality or meaning in order for it to exist as art. It very simply is the product of one creative artist's abstract expression of emotion. The meaning and quality is subjective according to each person's unique views and tastes. Those opinions about the art's meaning or quality are as numerous and diverse as the individuals judging it.
     One person's good art is another person's bad art. There really are no right or wrong opinions about things cultural just as there is no hierarchy of importance for the many ways individuals participate in the experience of expressing feelings with their unique works of art.
      We are all art lovers, creative or not.  We need each other.  Let's respect differences, agree to disagree if necessary, and all get along.
