The Difference Between Art and Entertainment

Art, they say, is in the eye of the beholder. Which is a nice way of saying it’s whatever you want it to be. But I don’t believe that. Although I don’t have an objective perspective on art, I believe there is such a thing as good and bad creative work.

But maybe that’s asking too much — for us to label art good or bad. And that’s fine, I guess. But what is not okay is calling something art when it’s not. When it’s something else.
