What does art mean to you ? And what do you look for?

Whenever we go to a new city, chances are one of the first things we do will be to tour it's art, either in its galleries or taking in the scenery. At the beginning of the last century collective meaning in art was superseded by the meaning derived by the individual. Then what is the individual looking for in art?
To transcend the now? To be shocked? To notice things? Or for Mystery? Or Knowledge?
