Learn about art in the modern age.

I visited a museum in spain today. What is very neat is that I reside in North America and did not need to fly there! Yes, the incredible minds of the workers at Google have made it possible to use Google Earth and travel to historic and treasured places around the world. This satellite imaging tool was credited with helping adversaries of the Iraq War be successful by giving real time access of sensitive information to the wrong element,when first introduced.

Can you define the meaning of Art?

Art allows a culture to communicate its ideas and values to future generations. Tiling, weaving, border decoration, and other such systems allow cultures to survive and propagate themselves. Dictators and autocrats have attempted to control the creation and display of art since the beginning of history. People are easier to control if their artisitic horizons are narrowed to the rulers' preferences. Art allows people to express meaning through craft, and potentially lets them share nontrivial insights about the world around them.Art is sometimes thought to include only certain groups of people and to exclude others. Art is frequently held to be a plaything of the wealthy because of the time required to pursure artistic endeavors and the cost of obtaining them. But art allows anyone to experience emotions and thoughts, because it now includes not only the artist's ideas but those that the viewer brings to the artistic work.
