Initiatives in Art and Culture will explore the myth, mystique and artistry that cement a work’s status as a “masterpiece” of American art. Key elements include taste of the times and its documentation, as well as history’s evolving judgment often recorded in the words of the artists’ themselves. Our consideration explores the lampooning and glori cation of American art in which the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and the extraordinary is elevated into the Pantheon. Tastemakers develop environments that are both artworks in and of themselves and the stage on which objects of desire are displayed. And thus, key to this consideration is the conversation between various media.
