Art, a luxury good?

I am deeply convinced that art is not a luxury good. 

Of course, art is not a priority as air to breathe, food or water. No one needs to go to a concert or to hang a painting in the living-room. But how would our world look like without art? Could it exist?

Looking at the beauty of a historic town, for example, which was built at a time where architecture was not dissociated from art, makes clear that and how art influences the way we perceive the world - and its value for our society.
