drurywalker has brought to my attention that I have misused the term bourgeoisie.
What I meant to say was something along the lines of upper class society, but I ended up saying middle class society. Bourgeoisie refers to those who are the middle class. I am sorry for this mistake and hope that it does not cause any serious problems. I can't rerecord, so this is the best I can think of to do to remedy this horrendous mistake.
I am truly sorry for any issues this has caused.
"The Creation of High Art" is an education animation that I created as the final project in my Animation II class in college. Because of the sociological concepts, history, and word choice, I intended this piece to be for adult audiences even though I believe that it is accessible to most people. While the conclusion of this piece represents a more modern attitude towards art, and what is defined as art, I do not fully agree with the narrator's argument. He is intended to be an unreliable narrator masquerading as a reliable narrator. While this is based on history, my intended conclusion is up to interpretation.
If you're more interested in the subject, I recommend reading "Cultural Entrepreneurship in Nineteenth Century Boston" by Paul DiMaggio because it served as a basis for this piece.
