Artists think of the word “art” as their own, but the word is used in many ways (although not as amusingly as the recent and rampant use of “curator” of everything). There’s the “state of the arts,” the “culinary arts,” and “the art of the deal,” among the arts of everything. Perhaps, artists should be flattered by the term used by everyone to describe things they like.
