Exploring is the exciting part of visual art. The focus is on increasing awareness of and appreciation for painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, art movements and technique. Visual art is a broad subject that asks questions such as these: What is art? What does visual art say about our world past and present? Is it a form of visual history or fiction? Is it, or when is it, a message delivery mechanism? The coordinators will present the first few subjects of the established curriculum, while also welcoming suggestions based on participantsâ€™ interests. Presenters develop talking points on their subjects and choose a mix of video, still images, etc. As needed, the coordinators assist in content preparation. The study group involves no prerequisites and no assigned reading beyond what a presenter may suggest. Recent or upcoming topics include Giorgio De Chirico, Photographer Brassai, Time (as a subject in art), Tattoo Art, Gaudi, Presidential Portraits (National Gallery), and Rembrandt.
