Hey everyone, don't forget the next SDA meeting

Wednesday 20th November, at Atlantis to listen again to a Reith Lecture (courtesy of BBC) :-
Grayson Perry on "What makes good art"
See you there at 7pm.

$5 members of SDA, $10 non-members, refreshments will be served.
The award-winning artist Grayson Perry asks whether it is really true that anything can be art. We live in an age when many contemporary artists follow the example of Marcel Duchamp, who famously declared that a urinal was a work of art. It sometimes seems that anything qualifies, from a pile of sweets on a gallery floor to an Oscar-winning actress asleep in a box. How does the ordinary art lover decide?
