I must say, the more "exclusive" we are when it comes to art, the less of there will be to go around. Right now, there are several members of congress looking to defund arts programs. It's better to embrace all forms of art, rather than rope off creations as art and as non-art. Sure, the Birth of Sean Preston by Daniel Edwards is not my cup of tea, but it is art. My Friend Robert is no less a ballet than Swan Lake. Hip hop and skating aren't below ballet. Sure, my programs are mere fingerpaint compared to the bold strokes of Kwan, V/M, G/G, and Asada, but my coach and I still call it art.
