>Anne Marie asked:
As a follow up I wanted to introduce students to aesthetic concepts in
other cultures. What qualities/characteristics do other cultures
regard as aesthetic, and how do these differ from traditional western
meanings and values? This all comes back to my basic idea regarding
how we see art as determined by what we value as art and what art
means to us personally and as a culture. Response? Thanks.
Guess what I found out about the Navajo "concept of art"?
ART IS EVERTHING
You are art, what you do is art, and you better think good thoughts
while you do it!
