Fine Arts vs Everyday Arts

“When art is reserved as the province of professional artists, a dangerous gulf develops between the fine arts and the everyday arts.

The fine arts are elevated and set apart from life, becoming too precious and therefore irrelevant. Having banished art to the museum we fail to give it a place in ordinary life.”

Thomas Moore
