The italics are ours: the satisfaction appears to be our contemporary’s.
The MA Programs in Art + Education envision a radical space where contemporary art and social justice education meet. We believe that artist educators are cultural workers, researchers, public intellectuals, and activists who help us see ourselves and the world in new ways. Connecting theory to practice, we explore progressive social justice approaches to teaching and artmaking, practice serving as persuasive advocates for the importance of the arts in schools and society, and work towards necessary social change in classrooms and community settings. The following keywords are central to our program philosophy.
Contemporary art is the art of today, produced by artists who are living in our time. It provides opportunities to reflect on society and the issues that are important to us and the world. It is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as identity, family, community, and nationality. Visiting contemporary art exhibitions and talking about living artists is an important aspect of our program. See examples of art.
