I have been a lurking member of the ubuntu art list for a while, 
although I am not an artist.
What *is* good artwork? Thinking about it, I do not see examples of 
group art around me in the world - art is generally a matter of 
individual taste. Most screenshots offered as worthy or good, do not 
impress me personally, although some obviously impress others.
Ubuntu is aimed at a world wide multi cultural user base. 'Good' art 
will need to cross cultural boundaries'
