The Other Night School: Art and Propaganda: The Curious History of Politics and Painting with Dr. Nathan Rees

The great masterpieces of the Western tradition: timeless expressions of an artist's unique, inner vision, right? Not always. Focusing on the revolutionary era of the Enlightenment, we'll investigate the impact of politics on art. Connecting the dots between art and history revels how artists were inspired--or outright compelled--by the political forces shaping the world around them. Come explore this other side of art and discover how even the most acclaimed works of art could serve as propaganda.

The Other Night School is a lecture series in partnership with Hills & Hamlets Bookshop, the University of West Georgia College of the Arts and Humanities, and AIR Serenbe. University professors give talks on topics of interest—historical, intriguing, and curious—in a setting relaxed and dynamic. Following the lecture is a conversation with the speaker, a question-and-answer discussion paired with wine and cheese.
