No see, perfect example of each to their own. I personally don't think a picture of a soup can is art. But you have every right to think so. But I'm willing to bet it took more talent to make the stained glass than the soup can.

See, there's a question--how do we quantify talent? How do we measure the amount of talent it took to make those glass doors (did the glasscutter come up with them, or was there a designer who directed him?) or to come up with the soup can? To decide to turn the soup can into "art"? (And to realize that it's satirizing art?)

Art is not based on the amount of "talent" something takes.

If that were the case, then playing the piano would also be art. It is not.

Isn't it? It's a type of art--the art of music. It depends on how you want to define "art." What is your definition of "art"?

Playing the piano is art. it's not graphic art, but it's art.

Techically speaking, music in any form is also an art. It's not a visual art, obviously, but it is an art (hence my musician friend with an Masters of Fine Arts in Tuba). Theater & writing are also forms of art.

I would have thought so, too, until I started printmaking. In fact, I generally considered Warhol to be a master of marketing & promotion & not a graphic artist until I took printmaking.
