The International Conference on Art, Aesthetics and the Future of City Life East/West will be held Wednesday, April 5, to Friday, April 7, in Raynor Memorial Libraries, unless noted otherwise.
Scholars, professionals and others interested in exploring the future of the arts in city life are invited to attend the interdisciplinary conference and participate in discussions with the 10 invited scholars.
The goal of this conference is to bring together a select group of interdisciplinary scholars and other professionals to examine this topic from their respective disciplines including aesthetics, urban planning, and related professional fields, to explore the common ground that might emerge.
The conference will include a panel discussion on “The Future of the Arts in Milwaukee City Life,” on Thursday, April 6, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Panelists include Barry Mandel, Deanna Tillisch, James Hall, Sherry Lemke, Reginald Baylor and Randy Cohen. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Curtis Carter, professor of philosophy.
The event is hosted by the Office of the Provost, Philosophy Department, anonymous benefactor, and the International Association of Aesthetics.
