Why we are intersted in sciences more than art?

It simply has to do with money. There is more money to be made in science than there is in art. Regardless of how important one or the other is (and an argument can be easily made for either being more important) people are easily led by the almighty <insert currency of your choice>.
The study of science is actually useful to humans.

The study of art is just done for recreation / relaxation purposes.

This is not to say that the enjoyment of art is not important.
I don't get it either, but it does seem that is where the money goes. More grant $ are spent there, that's for sure. But many grants go for "stupid" studies, ie: sex life of a tsi-tsi fly,etc.
science has far greater effect on our lives, art is nice to have, but not critical to our existence.
