Huge question. I look forward to others' responses.
Art is, and can symbolize many things - depending on which side of the canvas you are on.
As someone who paints, draws and feels... for me... Art is the freedom to express your ideas in your own way, and your own 'language'.
I appreciate art that asks questions or presents a different point of view. It is said 'you can judge a society by how it treats it's artists.' In ancient cultures art is everywhere and in everything. There are less 'observers' and more active participants.
