About the value of art

Why is art valuable? Is it for artistic qualities, social reasons or economic factors? Is it just because it elevates our souls? Because it can “transform the world”? Because it grants a notion of prestige? Is art a form of human cultural development, an investment, a commodity or a luxury item? Might it be a bit of everyone?
