The Arts

We often assume that everything in a museum is a work of art, but rarely clarify what we mean by the term “art.” Join graduate student lecture Dan Plekhov on a wide ranging survey of objects in the museum collections for a discussion of how cultures through time have understood the concept of “art” and how we understand it today.
