1. RE: krgrey3: I agree that the first definition is too simple; it doesn’t regard the personal and emotional aspect of art. The second definition is a great one because it includes this. I believe that art can not only make us feel something, but can be educational in terms of art history. It is meant to relay the makers intentions to the viewer, however interpreted. I enjoyed your response.
2. RE: Laura Barber: Part I: I really like the second definition as it is specific and to the point, without making too much of a boundary of what art is. Like you said, it is layered and multifaceted. I also like how you pointed out that art history involves the culture, I had forgotten to mention that in my reply.
