ART is a Cultural HERITAGE. It is the legacy of physical artifacts (culturalproperty) and intangible attributes of a group or society that are inheritedfrom past generations, maintained in the present and bestowed for thebenefit of future generations. Cultural heritage includes tangible culture(such as buildings, monuments, landscapes, books, works of art, andartifacts), intangible culture (such as folklore, traditions, language, andknowledge), and natural heritage (including culturally-significant landscapes,and biodiversity).The deliberate act of keeping cultural heritage from the present for the future isknown as Preservation (American English) or Conservation (British English),though these terms may have more specific or technical meaning in the samecontexts in the other dialect.Cultural heritage is often unique and irreplaceable, which places theresponsibility of preservation on the current generation. Smaller objects such asartworks and other cultural masterpieces are collected in museums and artgalleries. Grass roots organizations and political groups, such as the internationalbody UNESCO, have been successful at gaining the necessary support to preservethe heritage of many nations for the future.
