 NCAA @ Vanderbilt

The world is the new studio. Artists are involved in ever-expanding production involving constituents beyond the art world and marketplace. As educational institutions, how do we respond to this massive shift in artistic attitude? Is there a balance to be found between 19th and 20th century market-based production and new 21st century practices centered around interconnectedness?  We will carefully look at our role as educators of creativity and how we influence: locally and globally.
