  1. Prof Bruce Herman
    5 Stars Out Of 5
    Long awaited book on the role of art in community

    Meets Expectations: 5
    Dr. John Skillen releases his long awaited book -- which asks what role art can play at the heart of our communities (again!). He discusses powerfully the essential role it played in Italian culture over a 300 year period (before, during, and immediately after the Renaissance) revealing the depth of connection made to the deepest wellsprings of meaning and belonging.

    Dr. Skillen then moves us into a receptive frame of mind, offering hope and challenge as we consider a vital place for art once again--putting it (back) to work in its capacity to "say" those things embedded in memory, imagination, and the future vision of a people.

    A must read.
