Glenn,
I agree, the taste of the Getty-meal makes hungry. I like your proposal and
would share your investigation if I would be of some help. Who was the
squire of Parcival in the quest for the Holy Grail? I read the Henry's
answer too, think however that I would not deal with all the questions at
once. Why not start with the first question?

You wrote:
1. The desirability of an art curriculum actively acknowledging and
pursuing the concepts and themes common to art and other disciplines and
integrating them into the art curriculum.

My questions, to be better informed:
1: what do you mean by art? museum art, everything made by people or art
education?
2: what are the concepts and themes common to art?
3: which of these concepts and themes are not covered by common art curricula?
4: what exactly do you mean when you connect "other disciplines" to art ?
4: why would you integrate all these in art curricula? In what curricula?
(primary education, secondary education, junior high, does it make difference?)

You could ask why I am not as eloquently as "Henry". Well, first of all I am
not, secondly I prefer to have things straight and last (but not least) I
have to use a foreign language.
