United States
Here are some of the questions I have about art today:

* Are traditional forms of art, such as drawing, painting, and sculpture, valuable to people today?

* Is artistic naturalism, the accurate, artistic representation of concrete objects, appreciated today?

* Do those who appreciate the art of today appreciate inspiring representations of human accomplishment more than they appreciate, or tolerate, failure?

* If no one appreciates an artist's work, should that artist continue to create that work? In other words, is art intrinsically valuable, even if no one pays attention to it?

* I define art along the same lines as Ayn Rand, who defines it as "a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments." This is the best general definition I have seen. Using it, under the assumption that art is intrinsically valuable in the absence of anyone's attention or appreciation, does it follow that art is not solely a medium of public communication and that it is equally useful for private inspiration?
