What is good art?

I'm not sure we found any resolutions on this topic. Themes that ran through the discussion included: recognition of good art comes and goes (sometimes it's amazing, other times it's no big deal); art appreciation seems to focus on understanding an artist's technical capabilities; good art advances society; good art seems to fall into different categories with regard to the audience - art may be good only to a single person, some only to a single culture, and (maybe) some to all of humanity.

The topic for the next discussion is "what is propaganda". The term "propaganda" certainly has negative connotations but is there a positive spin to it, as well? As members of society, is there anything that we're hit with that isn't propaganda? Ostensibly, the news should fall into this category; does it? How do we recognize propaganda? Can we protect ourselves from it? There's an additional dimension to this discussion - show and tell. It will add to the discussion to have pieces of propaganda that we can examine so it would be great if we could each bring one piece of propaganda to this meeting. This isn't mandatory but it would be helpful...
