ARTSpeak is a project created at the Fashion Institute of Technology – it’s intended to foster a conversation about the constant interplay between art and life. ARTSpeak consists of a number of different forums, including, but not limited to: A lecture series featuring distinguished artists whose work speaks about their own diverse lives, an FIT blog site where anyone in the FIT community can contribute commentary, and exhibitions of FIT student artwork.
The fall 2012/spring 2013 season of ARTSpeak is titled, Open Book: Conversations on Art and the Book. This year, the lectures, panel discussions, and exhibitions will all explore the rich relationship between the written word, and fine art.
