Writings on Art and Civic Dialogue
Critical Perspectives is a collection of essays from the Animating Democracy Series that explore art, civic dialogue, and reflective critical writing. The essays focus on three compelling projects that employed the unique capacities of theater, visual art, and historic preservation to stimulate people to talk together in new ways about issues that matter in their communities: Dell' Arte theater's Dentalium Project, about the impact of a native American casino on the small town of Blue Lake, California; MACLA's Ties That Bind, a visual art project about intermarriage between Asian and Latino-Americans in the Silicon Valley; and the Slave Galleries Restoration Project, a project of St. Augustine's Church in collaboration with the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, about issues of marginalization on the Lower East Side.
