We asked three scholars, including a Pulitzer Prize winner, to look at the future of art and its impact on the country.
Here are their answers.
What’s the future?
This is an interesting question.
The art and the art history world have seen a lot of change over the past several decades.
But it’s the art historians who are still the core of the field, said Art History and Cultural Studies Professor Jennifer L. Davis, a visiting scholar at the University of Southern California.
The reason is simple: In the late 1970s, a new generation of scholars began to focus on the history of American art, which was undergoing a transformation.
This is a very different place to study than what we’ve seen in the past.
It was a period when American artists were looking for their identity, and they were looking to reclaim a sense of place, and a sense that they belonged, Davis said.
This new generation has changed the conversation.
It’s not just about art, Davis noted.
It has to do with the way we think about art.
Artists have to ask, Why am I here?
What does this place have to offer me?
We have to be aware of the fact that we’re not going to be here forever, said Davis.
We have a finite amount of time.
So this means that when we see the paintings and the prints and the sculptures, we need to be able to look back and ask, Where did I come from?
What do I need to do to be a part of that art?
I think that the art is about people, and we can’t get enough of it, Davis added.
Art historians have been at the forefront of the debate about the value of art history for decades.
They are the gatekeepers to the art that the public has come to know and love, said Dr. Peter Nye, a curator and dean at the Art History Institute of New York.
They have a particular place in the art world.
They’ve always been there, but now it’s a very interesting place.
Art history is the art of the people, which means they know a lot about the people.
They know the history and they have an eye to that history.
And so the new generation is bringing a different perspective, Davis pointed out.
Art history is also changing.
We’re getting a new appreciation of art through the medium of photography.
Art photography has changed how people think about the world and their place in it, said Nye.
There is a lot more interest in art in the digital age.
Art historians are looking at this and making a lot better use of the medium, Davis observed.
There are other things, too.
As we’ve been growing our population, the art we see in our communities has changed as well.
Art has a place in our history, Davis continued.
So we are taking art to places that we never would have gone otherwise.
This has meant more and more people are going to the museums, and this has led to a boom in the museums as well, Davis mentioned.
There are also new exhibitions and galleries, and there is a new kind of art being made in museums and galleries.
There has been a new art museum in New York City, for example.
There’s an exhibit called “The World Is Watching” that has a big theme: Art is everywhere.
It shows the world’s artists in different styles.
It brings people into museums and gallery spaces, Davis emphasized.
The next generation is also thinking about the art it will preserve, Nye added.
Art will continue to evolve and change and be affected by new technologies and technologies that will be available for the next generation, he added.
It’s a difficult question to answer, but what does art mean to you?
It is an important and enduring value, Davis concluded.
Art has always been a way to communicate something about the self, she said.
It is a way of being yourself and of being who you are.
It helps you find your own identity.
Art is about the interaction between the viewer and the artist.
It can be seen as a representation of the world around them.
It is the world that is around us, Davis stressed.
The world is watching.
And we need our art to be part of the conversation and part of our history.
Art is not only about art but about identity, Nya said.
Art gives us the ability to see ourselves and see what we can do to better ourselves and our lives, she added.
There is a place for the arts in American culture, Davis asserted.
We’ve been blessed to have a very successful art and history industry, but we also need to make sure that our art and our history is well understood, she pointed out, noting that she’s an African American.
The art of America is in our hands, Davis reminded us.
It will continue and grow as we expand our vision.
We will continue, Davis declared.
It won’t be the end of art.
