What is Art? Who determines what Art is? Who has the authority to attribute a particular interpretation to a work of Art? Why do we reject certain works as not being Art and accept others? Mary Anne Staniszewski, the author of Believing Is Seeing, says that "to question Art and to see it as something that has a specific history and belongs to a particular era can tell us so much about our culture and ourselves. � Consequently, she wrote this book in order to determine "how things come to have meaning and value. As a result of changing values and the way in which institutions affect how values and meanings are arrived at, contemporary art is viewed today very differently from the visual work of the past.
