Summer Series: Why Make Art in an Unjust World?

John Aylward, associate professor of music composition and theory, and Toby Sisson, associate professor of studio art, discuss technique, concept, and influence as they relate to an artist’s search for meaning and expression. They use the article "The Black American Composer," written by African American composer Olly Wilson, as supplementary reading to inform their dialogue.
