Victor D’Amico “Art as a Human Necessity”:

Collaborative Session between Teachers College, MoMA and The Art Barge

Three Collaborative Sessions provide the opportunity to contemplate how we can develop and better emphasize our own philosophy and practice of Art, Museum & Education for humanity as well as to rediscover new understandings of the work of Victor D’Amico, the founding director of the Education Department at MoMA. He broke through the boundaries that separated modern art, museums, schools and the natural world.

 

When: 2:00 - 5:00pm Monday, June 20 at Teachers College / 2:00 - 4:00pm Tuesday, June 21 at MoMA / 4:00 - 6:pm Friday, June 24 at Art Barge

Dear All,    

 

The Collaborative Session between Teachers College, MoMA and Art Barge about Victor D'Amico finished last Friday, June 24. These three sessions brought  together people who were in some way inspired by Victor D'Amico, and generated interesting questions about art education in the past, present and the future.

I would like to thank all the participants and people who took interest in it as well as the wonderful presenters. 

 

The session is over but I hope this is one of the opportunities for us to continue to collaborate with different institutions and different fields.

Most of all I hope we keep in touch!

 

Kindest regards,

Chimako
