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: firstname.lastname@example.org
