Roundtable luncheon to explore the nature of art
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will sponsor a roundtable discussion asking “What is Art?” at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7 in the Miley Hall executive dining room.
Is art something that you have to go to a museum to see, or is it all around us? Is there a difference between the Mona Lisa and graffiti art? Is art just about personal expression, or can it be used as a vehicle of political action and change? Does art have to be pretty? Can art make the world a better place?
These are some of the questions that Dr. Anthony Mangieri, assistant professor of art, will discuss during the luncheon. Participants will explore the nature of art and their relation to images in the world from both historical and contemporary perspectives.
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff, and lunch is provided. As space is extremely limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
