This led me to think about how the arts could be portrayed in fiction. For example in the Fairy Kingdom setting of my Brenebourne novels, the Fairy Queen has adopted photography (the magical realm is not above pinching good ideas they like the look of from Earth or any other planet!), as well as enjoying portrait/landscape paintings in their own right.
So what would your fictional world enjoy as an art form? Is is accessible to everyone or only the privileged few? Are there libraries (in my magical world every town has one and not a hint of cutbacks in sight! Now any UK reader of this will know I definitely do write fantasy!)? Are there art galleries?
What is considered "normal" art in your fictional world? Are there rebels against traditional forms? The fairytales are phenomenally important in my magical world and it is felt they have to be acted out regularly to keep them alive so there is a whole cultural aspect to my fictional setting in that alone. So what is the cultural aspect on your fictional world? (If it doesn't have one at all, is there a reason for that?).
