I think anime is both art and entertainment.
"Blue Exorcist" is one anime that comes to mind ...
The opening has Rin walking with the school (city?) as his background. I wouldn't mind having that scene as my wallpaper, but I haven't been able to find it and the intro has the opening credits on it. :\
Also, "Blue Exorcist" is "entertainment" with the storyline, action, and comedy moments.
"Black Butler" is another anime that I can think of that falls in the category of art and entertainment. Art with all it's rich scenes and colors and "entertainment" with the plot, characters, and actions.
I know there are more, but I wanted to give a few examples of animes that I felt were both art and entertainment.

It's both. In traditional film, the art is in the concept, direction, and execution, while the acting is a skill. Anime is all that, plus its hand drawn, for the most part.

Its entertainment art is way more detailed... some of the cover art or still are pretty close to art tho. If you look at anime style art the good ones detail is through the roof. But when you have an anime the focus is more entertainment rather than art. Iam sorry but if the reason for watching anime is art, you should stop watching and just go to pixiv... Movement always cause the frams to be lower quality because they have to draw so many of them. Although animation is a form of art, The american stuff that has a ton of money poured into it for example wall-e, its like no contest. I mean if you turned off the sound for you anime and had no subs, it really wouldn't be enjoyed, but if it was art it would be. There are parts here and there that are art, well animated fight scenes or just some still that's well done, ect. Like the openings to the anime are sometimes really good. If you scribbled something on a board to pass an idea it really isn't art, and a lot of anime is just kinda like that its more just supportive art than "art".

Just my personal opinion, but I think it depends on the work in question.

For example, I consider a lot of Hayao Miyazaki's work to be art, but I don't consider, say, Highschool of the Dead to be art.

Well, that's not really fair since I don't even consider Highschool of the Dead to be entertainment (just personally speaking lol).

But then, what is art? Its quite a philosophical question, if you think about it lol.

EDIT: However, I am inclined to call quite a bit of manga art, even though I don't find it entertaining, or even if its been made into an anime that I don't consider art. That's kind of weird, so I guess I really don't know what art is at all ^.^

Both, anime is an art form meant for entertainment. One thing I think a couple people forgot is art is not strictly a visual medium. Art can be music, writing, sculpture, drawing and painting or any combination of these among others. Anime is an art form... with personal exceptions (I woudn't call shin-chan art but art is subjective to personal opinion)
