New Book: Arts for Change: Teaching Outside the Frame

Posted by on March 16, 2009

What a dramatic new year this is, as we turn the great wheels of Change with a capital C!

In keeping with our country’s spirit, New Village is happy to release our eleventh original title—Arts for Change: Teaching Outside the Frame by Beverly Naidus.

Artist, writer, university educator, Beverly Naidus takes a fearless look at the evolution of socially-engaged arts taught in various educational settings. We learn the ins and outs of her own feisty career, ways she engages her students with their conscience, and the courageous paths of more than thirty teaching-artist colleagues she interviews.

Lucy Lippard writes about Beverly and the book: I have long admired her commitment to an alternative path in teaching art and social justice without contradictions. Her personal and political odyssey, and the thumbnail portraits of her artist colleagues/mentors offer an illuminating glimpse beyond the academic curtain.

Beverly just premiered Arts for Change at the College Art Association conference in Los Angeles. Advance release copies are available now from New Village Press; available in bookstores soon.
