“A Layman’s View of an Art Exhibition,

In his article “A Layman’s View of an Art Exhibition,” Theodore Roosevelt commented that what might appear to be art to one person may not be art to someone else. Leo Tolstoy in his article “What Is Art?” also brought into debate the way people may or may not see and interpret art. How do the viewpoints of these two authors come into play in terms of the effectiveness of a promotional campaign? What concepts might be learned from these two articles in the developing of a promotional campaign? (Support your answer with at least one additional article.)
