Act/Art: Art with Community
Monday, April 29, 5:00 a.m.
United States

This lecture series investigates how art programs can genuinely become integrated into various types of "communities" to serve social, educational, therapeutic, and aesthetic ends. Art practices that involve residents or constituents of local communities in the making of art are addressed and the timeless question about the role of the artist in society is posed, begging us to consider the import and impact of art making on the public sphere.
