· There’s no denying, humans value art. And one area of the human experience that seems not to have parallels out in nature is the arts. Why? Because art cannot exist separate from culture and I’ve never seen a cultured pigeon! Art reflects culture, transmits culture, shapes culture, and comments on culture. If we remove art from its cultural implications, we can agree that art is very often to do with the expression of beauty. And admittedly, art and beauty in humans is more than just sex appeal. The effectiveness of art depends on some basic assumptions about the knowledge and experience that is common between the artist and the audience which in turn evokes a response and often enjoyment!
