A New World of Learning

Self and Other Continues

Just a quick note to say that we continue to have excellent classes, but the two classes last Thursday were particularly good. In the afternoon class we discussed Dadaism and Surrealism, a followup to our trip to the Duchamps exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We ended the class with a discussion of the purpose and effectiveness of ‘shock’ in art. The evening class had its first guest artist, Peter Bruckner, who did a beautiful reading of his (very appropriate for the occasion!) short story, “The Cards of Fra Giovanni”. What a wonderful evening! We were also delighted to have several guests attend the class.

So although getting the College to a point where it ‘has its own legs’ is proving to be a quite a challenge, the classes continue to be quite rewarding.
