The Politics of Art: Timely Topics
MILWAUKEE, WI.- The impact of national policies on the role of art in
education remains a high priority among the American public and will
be the topic of discussion at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Forum: The
Impact of National Policies on Art Education on Thursday, October 14
at 6:30 p.m., and is free with general admission. Dr. Elliot Eisner,
Stanford University professor, author and researcher, will discuss his
most recent work concerning ways schools might improve by using
the processes of the arts in all of their programs.
Following the discussion, Sr. Joel Read, President Emerita at Alverno
College and Chair of the GMC/Education Committee, will engage Dr.
Eisner along with prominent Milwaukee leaders in business,
education and the arts in a lively debate about art, education and the
presidential candidates’ education platform. As the theme of politics
and war saturate the American consciousness, the Milwaukee Art
Museum is viewing the topic through a different lens, an artistic one.
During the October 15 Gallery Night, the Museum will feature Artists
Interrogate: Politics and War in tandem with Milwaukee Journal
Sentinel editorial cartoonists Stuart Carlson and Gary Markstein, who
will discuss their work at 6:15 p.m. Gallery Night is free.
