Why Art Matters and Art Share
Are you a creative interested in advocating for the significance of creativity in our current quarantine culture?
Join painter and MICA instructor Duane Lutsko in a presentation / open dialogue that explores creativity, art theory, and art activism.
We will open with Dr. Elliott Eisners Ten Lessons the Arts Teach to generate a dialogue and invite participants to challenge themselves to articulate a personal voice promoting the significance of art.
The last 30 minutes will be dedicated to an art share: a visual open mic + constructive critique, moderated by Duane Lutsko inviting any and all to display one personal artwork, talk about it, and get feedback from an empathetic audience.
Get your artwork ready for display and your brain well-oiled for an evening of looking, sharing, and discussing your concerns over why art matters.
Monday 7:30p – 9:00p
minimum: 6 participants
maximum: 12 participants
