I don't see any clear definition of what art is in that article, apart from the very ambiguous suggestion that art affects us in a positive way and it makes a good use of our time. (I visited my grandma yesterday, it affected me in a positive way and it was a good use of my time.)

Of course I would be skeptical with anyone trying to come up with a definition of art (good luck to anyone who tries - we can't come up with a definition of RPG here… and RPGs are what most of us know very well!) There have been, however, through time, several people that have diligently studied the subject. I suggest that one one needs to at least pick some and see how games fit within their theories before producing a conclusion.
