PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR TEACHERS

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

ART + SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

June 20–23, 2017

Palmer Museum of Art

Penn State School of Visual Arts

The Pennsylvania State University

Join us for an exploration of contemporary art within the spaces of everyday life. This summer we will examine the contemporary art practice known as socially engaged art, a mode of art practice that blurs boundaries of conceptual art, performance art, social action, and education. Contemporary art practice viewed in this way offers possibilities to explore interdisciplinary responses to contemporary issues through art. We will consider concepts, artists, and strategies of socially engaged art for use in k-12 learning contexts.

Tuesday, June 20 to Friday, June 23, 2017

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We have reached full enrollment for SICA 2017. If you are interested in attending let us know and we will put you on the waiting list: sica@psu.edu

The Summer Institute on Contemporary Art is a free professional development institute at Penn State. Our exploration of contemporary art and social engagement this summer will be informed by readings, discussions, and presentations by visiting scholars.

Facilitated by Dana Carlisle Kletchka, curator of education, and B. Stephen Carpenter II, professor of art education. Act 48 credits are available or educators may enroll in Art Education 597A: Professional Development Summer Institute to participate in the institute followed by a five-week online course.
