Art Controversies: Old and New

For a variety of reasons, art has remained controversial over the centuries. In these class sessions we will explore some of the more controversial issues, such as: Does art require craftsmanship, beauty, or fine materials? Is it the artist's mind or his/her hand that is crucial? What about art created with the help of assistants or optical devices?
Is Impressionism a "mess of palette scrapings as one critic claimed? Is modern art somthing your child could have produced? Where is the line between art and pornography, art and sacrilege, art and vandalism, art and propaganda?Who should keep art that was plundered long ago?
Join us in this course for a lively discussion of these and many more probing questions about art.

Online registration available now at Elderwise or 734 340-4691
Fee: Nonnember $45   Member $30

Life is the leaves which shape and nourish a plant, but art is the flower which embodies its meaning.
