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. Some of the literary works you create in this class will later be workshopped in a GRUBB Arts summer session and then be used as performing art in “Abstract – A Performing Arts Series.” Participation in the summer workshop and/or the performing art shows is not a requirement for this class. Taught by Amber Grubb. (Image is of “Dino on the Wall” by Ana Lopez)
