Art & Architecture of Today
BOTH SECTIONS OF THIS SEMINAR ARE FILLED
Lowell Pettit, Moderator
This Seminar offers a series of presentations on Contemporary Art and Architecture, highlighting the works of today’s emerging talents.
The sessions, which are more conversational than didactic, honor a simple ethic: that one of the best ways to access today’s art is to re-engage Art History. Specifically, we isolate influential artists and architects working in the 21st century and create a context for their respective practices, rooted in more familiar names and movements in the 20th century and earlier. Video will be used.
Please note: There are two (2) Sections of this Seminar. Specify your first choice of time.
