Alright, for my first ever philosophy discussion topic I’ll do something directly related to my music:  How to define the value of art.

I hear pretty often when I ask about this that there is no objective “good” or “bad” in art, but rather only what the person observing the art subjectively feels about it.  Yet some works of art are worthy of being placed in museums, and others are not; some art is considered highbrow, and some lowbrow; some artworks by certain artists are considered to be their masterpieces, and others to be their biggest mistakes.  Clearly then, there is some kind of differentiation being made with regards to quality.  But how is that quality to be defined?  What makes some artworks better than others?  Is it the amount of subjective appreciation it accrues, or maybe the strength with which it conveys a message?  Perhaps the artist’s technical skill that artwork displays has something to do with its value.

For artists looking to make “good” art, I believe there should be a scale by which their creations can be at least roughly judged.  What should be on the scale?  Innovation?  Depth of message? Technique and skill?  How pleasing it is to the beholder?  Emotional evocativeness?  Intellectual weight?  Complexity?  That seemingly undefinable sense of beauty?  What do you think makes art “good” rather than “bad?” And is it relative to what the artist was physically capable of, given: when the art was made, available artistic resources, etc.? I think that there’s something valuable in innovation and in conveying a message, but I’m curious; what do you think?  Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, or discuss with other commenters :)
