The Bennett-Schmidt Lectures on the Higher Aim of Art at Studio Incamminati Fall 2019

In their lifelong pursuit of art, artists often focus on the "hows" of acquiring skills and knowledge, but not the "whys," "wheres" and "whats." "Why do you create?” “Where do you apply your skills?” "What images are vital to produce?” In this series of hour-long evening talks, internationally renowned thought leaders discuss personal creative philosophies in a thought-provoking conversation on professional practice.

All presentations take place in Studio Incamminati's fifth-floor studio. The cost is $10.

ALL AREA ART STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND AT NO CHARGE. HOWEVER, THEY MUST REGISTER ONLINE AND DISPLAY A VALID STUDENT ID AT THE DOOR.

THE ART OF OBSERVATION AND THE OBSERVATION OF ART:
ZADIG IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

DR. SALVATORE MANGIONE, MD 

 

Dr.  Mangione will speak on how astute observation is a fundamental component of the art of medicine. With most schools and residencies offering little formal teaching of this skill, curiously, it was nineteenth-century medicine that may have provided the conceptual framework for what is now known as Visual Thinking Strategy.
