What does it mean for art to be socially engaged? Can art help us find the vision to move through today’s world?  In “And Now Behind Curtain #2,” Beverly Naidus examines the tensions, fears and illusions promoted by corporate media and the stories of individuals struggling to make sense of current economic and political realities while inviting viewers to participate in a game that playfully explores the perils and rewards of activism.  

In this interactive and eye-opening workshop day, Naidus will lead participants in an exploration of the exhibit that will include hands-on art-making, a walking meditation, and large- and small-group discussions on related topics including engagement with the environment and media literacy. Educators and artists will consider how to apply the day’s lessons in their own work in classrooms and in the community, and brainstorm connections to the Common Core and the new National Arts Standards.

Naidus is the author of Arts For Change: Teaching Outside the Frame, in which she explores how to teach from a socially engaged and interdisciplinary perspective, using art as both a deconstructive and reconstructive force that can analyze and question what exists and play a visionary role in looking toward the future.
