Congratulations to our friend Jeff Lieberman, whose essay “Half a Million Years of Art History” (co-written with Eric Gunther) was accepted into a new anthology titled “20Under40.”
“20UNDER40” features twenty essays about the future of the arts and arts education, each written by an emerging leader under the age of forty. The anthology will provide a unique arena for new ideas by formally gathering the thoughts of young artists, teaching artists, administrators, researchers, and other arts and arts education professionals—legitimizing the talent of young leaders by bringing their ideas out of the margins and into the forefront of our dialogue.
In their essay, Jeff Lieberman and Eric Gunther review the evolutionary purposes of the arts and advocate for a greater sense of symbiosis between the arts and the sciences to keep aesthetic development at the core of our survival as a species.
The book is set to be released December 1, 2010. Learn more about 20Under40 here.
