American culture is in a unique position of being the only leg of national power that is fully respected in the world. It's a golden opportunity. How can artists use it?
- Wayne Miller
Artist and educator Wayne Miller’s presentation will focus on how artists can use their power in a time of chaos and uncertainty and will invite discussion from the audience.
As background to exploring opportunities for artists, Miller’s slide presentation will provide an historical context of art and power in various cultures. Subjects include prehistoric art, MIT classrooms, power patronage, decoration, politics and art, examples of protest art, and the alternative of art for art's sake.
