Romancing Nature Again

October 21, 2010

The Humanities and Sciences Department presents its Twenty-Fourth Annual National Conference on Liberal Arts and the Education of Artists, this year titled Green, Greener, Greenest: Romancing Nature Again. The event takes place October 27 – 29 at the Algonquin Hotel, 59 West 44th Street, and will feature a keynote address by MFA Design Criticism Department faculty member and MoMA curator Paola Antonelli.

The conference will feature presentations that explore the ways in which art educators, visual artists and writers approach, understand and use nature and green—with topics ranging from the use of nature in traditional landscape painting to the contemporary environmental movement and everything in between.
