How does public art change the experience of living in a city? What would it be like to create art outside a museum — for people to see as they go about their lives? And if you could “talk back” to the art around town, what would you say? In this intersection of art criticism and art creation, we’ll look at selected paintings from Tapestries Lakeland (the paintings now hanging on outdoor walls downtown) and use ekphrasis, the ancient practice of using words to comment on a piece of visual art, as a tool to write essays, poetry and song lyrics — to have conversations about art. Taught by Amber Grubb. (Image is of “Jerboa Atop an Alien” by David Collins.)
