Rudolf Arnheim – Art & Visual Perception – “A Quote”

I will be posting QUOTES from important writers/photographers in the art/performance world since I can’t photograph shows for the time being. I might work on setting up some interviews using the internet! Stay safe!

Since its publication fifty years ago, this work has established itself as a classic. It casts the visual process in psychological terms and describes the creative way one’s eye organizes visual material according to specific psychological premises. In 1974 this book was revised and expanded, and since then it has continued to burnish Rudolf Arnheim’s reputation as a groundbreaking theoretician in the fields of art and psychology.

My visit to the lower level Gallery at the Deutsche Bank building at 60 Wall Street was a far reach from Coney Island!

However, there was a lovely exhibit by some of Coney Island artists on display for this ‘special’ showing last night.

On hand were The New York Variety All Stars to entertain the exhibit viewers.
