About this title


Through interviews with contemporary artists, engaging discussion of the purposes of art and an accessible writing style, this book helps the readers connect the making and meaning of art in a way no other book does.  Adams, The Making and Meaning of Art teaches that art is not just in museums and demystifies the creative process, so that readers can appreciate the relevance of art in their own lives.

From the Author:

This book combines a brief history of art with discussions of the major categories of art from painting, sculpture and architecture to crafts.  It places art in context and includes interviews with various artists including the environmental artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the graphic designer Milton Glaser, and the Director of the New York Studio School, Graham Nickson.  Aspects of the creative process form a major theme of the book.
