Inspiring Lecture by Emerging Ceramic Artist: Roberto Lugo
Watch his video below!
While the CSArt team is busily working on the current share, we are also planning the upcoming shares! For this upcoming share, we have been inspired by the "STEM to STEAM" initiative championed by Rhode Island School of Design. This initiative seeks to put Art and Design in their place of importance in a time when innovation is most needed in our society. Frustratingly, "innovation remains tightly coupled with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects. Art + Design are poised to transform our economy in the 21st century just as science and technology did in the last century. We need to add Art + Design to the equation — to transform STEM into STEAM." (http://stemtosteam.org/).
In hopes of Clemson University adopting this movement as many institutions, corporations, and individuals around the nation are doing, we are basing our next share theme off of this.
Details will be announced upcoming, so stay tuned, but in the spirit of Lugo's empowering talk, I just had to let you know how Clemson CSArt is striving to empower not only ceramic artists, but artists and innovators everywhere. Art can make a real, tangible difference.
Thank you Roberto Lugo for your inspiring talk and your incredible passion and heart.
