what is art?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Public Art : One Thread

It seems that everything is being called "art" these days. I was in Winnipeg a few years ago and there was a pile of garbage in the middle of the floor. Is that art just because it was in a gallery? Can any lines be drawn as to where something is or isn't art?
