It looks like there was a typo!

What I meant is:

A civilization evaporates, leaving some paintings and CDs without a clue as
to author, artist, or context. Critics and scholars dig these things up and
learn to view and play them. After a while, and a lot of work, it becomes
clear that they are art, and which ones are better and which worse.

If this is not possible, there is no such thing as art.
