But Is It Art? Understanding and Enjoying Contemporary Art *NEW!*

Art can seem so far removed from our everyday experience that it is hard to understand. Contemporary art can be especially difficult to the point of questioning it being art at all. Delve into a wide range of particularly thorny art issues, explain much-bandied-about but little-understood concepts such as “conceptual art,” “new media art,” “business art,” and more, as well as explore the central question of “What makes it art?” Join instructor Tamora Martin-Kowalski for an interactive and lively exploration of the enigmatic and surprisingly relevant arts of our time.

*This course will be offered online via Zoom. A meeting link and login information will be emailed to registrants within 1 week of the course start date.
