Artists Who Dared
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Almost every artist of renown has seized upon the artistic and/or scientific developments of his/her own times and dared to create outside the parameters of what was current and new. Each one took chances by challenging the contemporary art of their era and reinterpreting older principles while broadening the concepts. This lecture series will explore innovators in painting, architecture, sculpture and photography, who "bent" the rules and presented the public with visual and intellectual food for thought.
