Political Art: On War and Censorship

A recently acquired work of art by Daniel Heyman entitled When Photographers Are Blinded, Eagles’ Wings Are Clipped (2009–10) is the focus of this discussion-based workshop. Complex and compelling, this eleven-by-fifteen-foot work creates a powerful narrative of the effects of both war and censorship. We will use the Assyrian reliefs as a point of comparison to investigate how these two monumental works of art, created 3,000 years apart, communicate different points of view about related themes. Enrollment for this workshop is limited. Pre-registration is required by calling (603) 646-1469 by July 28.
