This might be a bit off topic, but I don't think so. We spend an inordinate amount of time debating what art is but almost none discussing why we have art and why so many people are so impassioned by it, with it, and because of it? Maybe an idea for a future article might be entitled: Why does Art Matter?

I believe art matters because doing art reflects the highest intellectual achievement of human kind. People doing art operate at the very top of the Maslow's hierarchy - self actualization and are using art for elevated communication.
