Art in Culture

  • Art as Mirror for Audience. In the past, art gave hope to audiences. Today art mirrors what people are on the level they are already at. Art is about impulse, whim, and casualness. Audiences are wary of such art, yet it is a mass fascination.
  • Art Practice: Public Art. Public art is important for a city. It provides identity. Several examples of public art are shown and discussed.

Art and Community

Museums and Galleries

  • Museum of Modern Art: Art Display Model. Modern art in the MOMA from 1929 onwards was displayed primarily in chronological order, representing each art movement. Art is displayed on white walls with flexible lighting.
  • National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. A work of art itself, John Russel Pope's National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, invites visitors into the world of art. It brings its art to the level of government as part of American national and cultural life.
