About Michael Brenson
Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program
Artist in Residence Home

What is artistic creativity? Why is it necessary? How do artists think and process information in ways that are different than art historians, let's say, or critics? What is the art experience, and how can it have the maximum impact on people's lives? How does it work and affect people in museums, and how does it work and affect people outside institutions? How does the critic function in the art world and in society? How does criticism enhance or constrict the artist's situation and place? How does it affect the ability of the art experience to affect peoples' lives?
