About this course:

The word "art" originated in the late Middle Ages and has since been appropriated by institutions, academics and leaders for tribal, religious, political, cultural, and personal advantage. As a result, art acquired a spectrum of diverse and contradictory meanings and remains a potent source of controversy. This course seeks to provoke rousing conversations and diverse opinions of the meaning of art. Each week—using slide presentations, lectures, conversations, and venues within walking distance—we compare and contrast our personal experiences and opinions of paintings, drawings, sculpture, architecture, earthworks, commercial graphics, and events; with the published opinions of noted artists, critics, curators and galleries. Rather than seeking a definitive result, our discussion intends to broaden our appreciation of alternatives, purposes, and degree of accomplishment of the creator's objectives.
