Dear Amy, I have been considering the question of culture as it relates
(or as I have come to believe) IS art. You are on the right track when
you are considering multiple perspective. Art is COMPLETELY culture
bound and therefore difficult to talk about in any general way. Two
books that really helped me : Anthropology, Art and Aesthetics edited by
Jeremy Coote and the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas(edited by
Janet Berlo). ood luck...you are taking on an important and difficult
task!!!
