New Directions for the Arts, a Symposium for Artists, Educators, and Community and Government Leaders (University of Georgia, April 19-21, 1967).
Georgia Univ., Athens.
This 1967 symposium on the arts, sponsored by the Georgia Center for Continuing Education and the Institute of Community and Area Development, included speeches and panel discussions involving artists, educators, and community and government leaders from Georgia and elsewhere. The keynote address on the transformation of American culture was discussed. Topics of the other addresses were the problems and responsibilities of critics, the role of art museums in the United States, and environmental design. Panel sessions dealt largely with ways, means, and purposes of Federal government subsidizing of the arts, effective means of community organization (with emphasis on arts councils and cultural centers), and educational trends in the visual and performing arts in public schools, museums, and television. In addition, eight panel members representing various areas of the arts expressed their views on government subsidy, arts education, and community organization in behalf of the arts. (ly)
