Lone Star College-CyFair’s new Art Speak Series proves there is more to the art world than gallery exhibitions. Art faculty will lead engaging discussions on topics not only to help raise awareness of the great art in the area, but to help attendees form more educated opinions on hot button issues, such as censorship and spirituality.
3 - 5 p.m.
Center for the Arts Room 102 (Recital Hall)
Discussion led by Anne Engerrand
For as long as artists have been creating art, governments, religious institutions, and individuals have attempted to shape the character of the people. From Ancient Assyria to modern-day China, art and artists have been guided, supported, and censored. In the United States, the First Amendment to the Constitution protects the content of art as a form of speech and expression. Yet the conduct or method associated with the protected content of the work of art can be regulated. We will examine the limitations that the Constitution imposes on the government to regulate art and the method of its expression.
