A weekend-long International Art Forum on Art and Beauty is to be held this week, November 1-3, at the headquarters of the World Youth Alliance in New York City. Discussion will evolve around the questions: What is beauty? What is the role of beauty in art? Should art always be beautiful?
The forum will feature lectures by the New Criterion s executive editor James Panero, Marcantonio Architects co-founder Dino Marcantonio, and Wayne Adams, a contemporary visual artist. An exhibition of artists pieces and a concert by the World Youth Alliance Chamber Orchestra will comprise the forums events. For a full schedule of events and to RSVP, visit their website here .
