Dr. Stephanie Taylor to Discuss Environmental Art Exhibition 2017
Art history professor Stephanie L. Taylor will lead a gallery talk in conjunction with The New Romantic: Visions of the 21st Century Landscape at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14.
Dr. Taylor will guide participants through the exhibition, helping them begin to answer questions like “how do contemporary artists work with big issues, like the environment?” and “how can creative vision open our eyes to new ways of thinking about our world?”
