Somewhere under the Rainbow: The Postmodern Politics of Art Education.
Grumet, Madeleine R.
Educational Theory, v45 n1 p35-42 Win 1995
This essay explores "modernity's" influence on school art and on educators and researchers. It argues that the deep channels of modernity have cut fine arts away from the curriculum, isolating it on an island of professional practice and specialized study. A new approach would reinterpret art as popular, political, site-specific, communal, and active. (JB)
