Art in Other Places Artists at Work in America's Community and Social Institutions
Westport, Connecticut, Praeger, 1992. 1st printing. Hardcover. 8vo, pp. xix, 291. Bound in burgundy cloth with gilt lettering to spine & front brd. Foreword by Page Smith. Very good+. No dust jacket. "In this book, the accounts of 'art in other places' are, in fact, stories of the relationship of artists to communities. These communities are, in their various forms, communities of troubled and sometimes dispairing individuals. The artists bring light and hope and the joy of creation to those communities, and they are themselves remade in the process." "In drawing the attention of the artists away from their own needs and statements to the needs of the members of their communities, 'art in other places' deepens the artists' comprehension of the meaning of what they practice. It turns out they need these arduous communities as much as the communities need them.". .
