A very interesting article on what constitutes art. Does it needs a sort of permission or understanding to be so? I think this idea helps to grasp why a pile of garbage is such unless it is in a museum and labeled as something else. Though the too are the same, the context and placement differ tremendously.
One of the world's great violinists, Joshua Bell, treated unsuspecting commuters to a virtuoso performance on the Washington Metro system. What happened next?

Super interesting article.
Didn't have a comment space so here's my comments:

The amount of work load students (especially high school students) are given really eliminates the ability to read and love literature. Who has time or energy left to read after hours of activities and homework? Standardized testing time which is usually mandated longer than necessary is actually one of many students favorite times to read and be creative. With the extra time during my PSSA (Pennsylvania State Standarized Assessment), I would write notes or stories, make orgami, or read novels. It was actually probably the most creative time of my schooling. Additionally, I wasn't bogged down at home during these times and could continue the flow of creativity. So what I see as the real threat to creative is not the standardized tests, but rather the hours and hours of unnecessary work given to students each year. If our school systems want to really be effective promoters of well-rounded students, then they need to figure out a way to teach and allow students to go home and be well-rounded too. This must certainly includes creative thinking and problem solving.
