If nothing else, art must be interesting. My mother used to tell me "it's hard to be distracted if you're not already focused," and what I took from that was that every distraction is not bad. Art often functions as a diversion that causes someone to take a moment to look at or be made aware of something beyond themselves. Creating art, or a healthy distraction, is the domain of the artist, and exposing that art to the masses requires the courage to handle a response or lack of response. It took me some time to appreciate criticism for what it truly is - a response to a distraction. When you distract someone, be ready for a retort...lol.
