Description

6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. Following an hour-long reception that will allow participants to visit the Museum to see the faculty work on view in the the RISD Faculty Exhibition 1990 biennial, the symposium will move on to its most controversial and topical segment, the one addressing "Social Responsibility and the Place of the Artist in Society." To grapple with this most fundamental of issues, Bright has rounded up Assistant Professor of Illustration David Porter ('69) to advocate for restrictive guidelines for public arts funding and Nade Haley of the freshman foundation faculty to argue against such restrictions. Special guest Benny Andrews, former director of the NEA's Visual Arts Program, will lend his own perspective as a black artist, critic and teacher as well as a strong advocate for community-based art and cultural expression. Dennis Congdon of the painting department will moderate this session.
