    Endless.

    The area of art you enter can or may not require you to actually execute art. It can range from hi-tech to the most basic, from one of a kind to massive reproduction, from visual imagery as free-standing "art" to decoration on millions of different items, 2D to 3D, dirty-handed to totally super clean electronic execution.

    Do it yourself, plan it for another, teach another how to do it, do it for pay as an employee, do it as self-employment, do it for fun, do it for consignment, do it for free public use or consumption, do it for research in any number of fields, or any other idiotic thing you can come up from the sublime to the ridiculous.

    EVERY SINGLE THING you use in your home and at work, to entertain or educate yourself, to clothe/shelter/improve your lifestyle involves some type of real art to some degree. You can't escape it. You can't fight it.

    The sign that says "Do not piss in the blast furnace!" at your local steel mill was done by an artist. The type fonts that your newspaper use were designed by an artist. The scenery/interiors on the vapid television sitcoms you giggle over were created by artists, as was the Cheezy Poof bag you're stuffing your face from.

    How far do i have to go with this before you get the idea? You want a list of EVERYTHING, please ask Mr. Manley how much bandwidth I'm allowed to use, then check back in about a month...

    LOL! Sorry to take this off-topic, but does such a sign really exist and why?

    Yes...the old Jones and Laughlin mill in the S'Side of Pittsburgh, on the gantry. (Mill no longer exists or I'd get a picture)

    Banned ekta92 and tisha_b. Both were spam bots. One would post a "question" and the other would "answer" with the spam link. Trying to disguise spam as a discussion.
