The Myth of the Eccentric Genius: Some Thoughts on Political Correctness and Art Education.
Rush, Jean C.
Arts Education Policy Review, v97 n2 p21-26 Nov-Dec 1995
Presents a collection of cantankerous opinions criticizing political correctness, abstract art, sympathy for AIDS sufferers, and arts advocacy. Contains a briefly coherent passage advocating serious and rigorous formal study. The rest amounts to little more than a conceptual mapping of rancorous reactions to the current state of affairs.
