Summary
"The Mountain Lake Symposium and Workshops, which began almost forty years ago, were based on the idea that art can have an integral relationship with local communities. To this end artists, architects, critics, and scholars from various fields have been invited to Southwest Virginia to participate in symposia that engaged issues concerning art and the larger culture. Symposia papers and panel discussions focusing on art's social, moral, and ethical values created a theoretical foundation for the Mountain Lake Workshops. Prominent artists, working with community members and students interested in artistically exploring such values, were invited to direct Mountain Lake's collaborative art workshops. Since then Workshop activities have expanded beyond the locus of rural Southwest Virginia to other cities and countries in places as far away as France, Austria, Germany, China, and Japan. That the Mountain Lake Workshop still engages artists and participants is a clear testament to its ongoing relevance in our postmodern, consumerist age.", --publisher's description, lower cover
