We consider ourselves extremely lucky to be a mere stone’s throw from such great cultural institutions, and more so still when we get the opportunity to swim for a bit in their respective wakes.
As part of its ongoing series of installations by acclaimed contemporary artists called WorkSpace, the Blanton Museum of Art is featuring Brooklyn-based Anna Craycroft’s first in a series – The Union of Initiatives for Educational Assembly – exploring the nexus of art and pedagogy.
The work, entitled Subject of Learning/Object of Study, uses over 500 books from the Libraries collections related to art education as support for the two-room installation featuring objects meaning to recall tools developed by renowned pedagogues Maria Montessori and Friedrich Fröbel.
The exhibit runs today through June 20, 2010. Find out more at the Blanton website.
