The rest of the performance doesn? I want to do THAT, be a ballerina.? I vividly remember sitting on the top of the un-folded auditorium seat at DeKalb College now known as Georgia Perimeter College in Atlanta. As Munchkin Lady, I had a hat made out of a giant piece of foam with paper flowers stuck to it and my mother made my cat costume, which I believe reappeared at Halloween. What I remember most about that experience are the librarians who devoted two months to creating this play and making each of us, no matter how small the part, feel like a super star. I don? Seems like I always had paint and paperand family who were involved in many different art forms.
My fourth-grade teacher used to bring interesting instruments in to class for us to try out.
Art as Experience
I took art classes and had piano lessons and remember going to chamber music concerts and to see my father in the amateur productions he participated in. At the end of the school year we took a road trip to visit my grandmother in Oak Park, Illinois. I believe that was the first time they took me on a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Oak Park, and when I learned that my grandfather had designed the family home.
Then we headed to upstate New York to visit my mother?

One day I tagged along with my favorite cousin to see what Junior High was like. I remember liking changing classrooms ever hour. My cousin remembers that once we got to her art class, I didn? As no one who knows me will have any trouble believing, it was playing Scrooge in my eighth-grade play, A Christmas Carol. And I was wonderful; authentic you might say. Bah humbug, indeed. I was interested in art before that, but that was the first time I participated wholeheartedly in the artistic process.
This might not be my first experience with the arts, but entering the Charles Street doorway of The Walters was like leaving Baltimore for another world. I was in first grade on a field trip. As I climbed the steps within the museum, I was greeted by a naked statue! With my young mind, I immediately responded with an ewww, a giggle and then proceeded to look away while the teachers tried to keep the class in line.
Experience Live Art
However, what started as disgust, quickly morphed into love. Seeing more of the museum I approached the art work depicting Adam, Eve, and the serpent, which had a woman's head. At that point I decided that this museum was cool. Later, I would realize that the museum not only had European art, but it also included art from cultures around the world.
They had very old and unique pieces that kept me fascinated the whole time. Also, the way the museum was planned out, the rooms made the art and the physical location an interesting place to occupy. As I got older I became more interested in film and music, but the fine arts and museums still hold my attention. To this day, I love learning about the history of places and art works. I even minored in history during my undergrad years and traveled back to The Walters to do research for my papers on selected pieces in their collection.
That little school field trip changed me, and I have often thought about the experience throughout my life. My first memory of an arts experience and this will really date me, since the arts are now being offered in schools in an increasingly limited way was in elementary school. I have a vague recollection of educational selections of works such as Peter and the Wolf and Carnival of the Animals as well as the Austin Civic Ballet? Although I don? In junior and senior high school, I attended productions of musical theater works during the summer months at Zilker Park, next to Barton Springs.
The insight of the imagination must suffice One of them accepts life and experience in all its uncertainty, mystery, doubt, and half knowledge and turns that experience upon itself to deepen and intensify its own qualities—to imagination and art. This is the philosophy of Shakespeare and Keats. John Dewey distinguishes between experience in general and "an" experience.
Experience occurs continually, as we are always involved in the process of living, but it is often interrupted and inchoate, with conflict and resistance. Much of the time we are not concerned with the connection of events but instead there is a loose succession, and this is non-aesthetic. Experience, however, is not an experience.
An experience occurs when a work is finished in a satisfactory way, a problem solved, a game is played through, a conversation is rounded out, and fulfillment and consummation conclude the experience. In an experience, every successive part flows freely. An experience has a unity and episodes fuse into a unity, as in a work of art. The experience may have been something of great or just slight importance. Such an experience has its own individualizing quality. An experience is individual and singular; each has its own beginning and end, its own plot, and its own singular quality that pervades the entire experience.
The final import is intellectual, but the occurrence is emotional as well. Aesthetic experience cannot be sharply marked off from other experiences, but in an aesthetic experience, structure may be immediately felt and recognized, there is completeness and unity and necessarily emotion. Emotion is the moving and cementing force. There is no one word to combine "artistic" and "aesthetic," unfortunately, but "artistic" refers to the production, the doing and making, and "aesthetic" to appreciating, perceiving, and enjoying.
For a work to be art, it must also be aesthetic. The work of the artist is to build an experience that will be experienced aesthetically. Artistic expression is not "spontaneous. Art requires long periods of activity and reflection, and comes only to those absorbed in observing experience. An artist's work requires reflection on past experience and a sifting of emotions and meanings from that prior experience. For an activity to be converted into an artistic expression, there must be excitement, turmoil and an urge from within to go outward.
Art is expressive when there is complete absorption in the subject and a unison of present and past experience is achieved. There are values and meanings best expressed by certain visible or audible material. Our appetites know themselves better when artistically transfigured. Artistic expression clarifies turbulent emotions. The process is essentially the same in scientists and philosophers as well as those conventionally defined as artists. Aesthetic quality will adhere to all modes of production in a well-ordered society.
The fifth chapter Dewey turns to the expressive object. He believes that the object should not be seen in isolation from the process that produced it, nor from the individuality of vision from which it came. Theories which simply focus on the expressive object dwell on how the object represents other objects and ignore the individual contribution of the artist.
Conversely, theories that simply focus on the act of expressing tend to see expression merely in terms of personal discharge. Works of art use materials that come from a public world, and they awaken new perceptions of the meanings of that world, connecting the universal and the individual organically. The work of art is representative, not in the sense of literal reproduction, which would exclude the personal, but in that it tells people about the nature of their experience.
Dewey observes that some who have denied art meaning have done so on the assumption that art does not have connection with outside content.
He agrees that art has a unique quality, but argues that this is based on its concentrating meaning found in the world. For Dewey, the actual Tintern Abbey expresses itself in Wordsworth's poem about it and a city expresses itself in its celebrations. In this, he is quite different from those theorists who believe that art expresses the inner emotions of the artist. The difference between art and science is that art expresses meanings, whereas science states them.
A statement gives us directions for obtaining an experience, but does not supply us with experience. That water is H 2 O tells us how to obtain or test for water. If science expressed the inner nature of things it would be in competition with art, but it does not. Aesthetic art, by contrast to science, constitutes an experience. A poem operates in the dimension of direct experience, not of description or propositional logic.
The expressiveness of a painting is the painting itself. The meaning is there beyond the painter's private experience or that of the viewer. A painting by Van Gogh of a bridge is not representative of a bridge or even of Van Gogh's emotion. Rather, by means of pictorial presentation, Van Gogh presents the viewer with a new object in which emotion and external scene are fused. He selects material with a view to expression, and the picture is expressive to the degree that he succeeds.
Dewey notes that formalist art critic Roger Fry spoke of relations of lines and colors coming to be full of passionate meaning within the artist. For Fry the object as such tends to disappear in the whole of vision. Dewey agrees with the first point and with the idea that creative representation is not of natural items as they literally happen. He adds however that the painter approaches the scene with emotion-laden background experiences.
The lines and colors of the painter's work crystallize into a specific harmony or rhythm which is a function also of the scene in its interaction with the beholder. This passion in developing a new form is the aesthetic emotion. The prior emotion is not forgotten but fused with the emotion belonging to the new vision. Dewey, then, opposes the idea that the meanings of the lines and colors in a painting would completely replace other meanings attached to the scene. He also rejects the notion that the work of art only expresses something exclusive to art.
Very comfortable and Manolo was very accommodating. Likely intended for a larger group of people and ideally suited for a larger group , the apartment had all the amenities we could have asked for. Nice kitchen with big fridge and stove , multiple bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and nice laundry facilities. Combine all that with a view of the Parthenon from the balcony, and a less-than 20 minute walk to the ancient agora market place full of restaurants and shops by the Acropolis, and you have a great location to get out and explore Athens for a very good price.
Secondly, we liked the fact that we could walk to the metro stop, Metaxourgeio, in about 10 mins. Also, the laundering of the sheets and towels were done for us each week by the apartment's cleaner. With Manolo's help we managed our stay, found amazing places around and met nice people. It's got everything you need and would want.

Spotless clean apartment with great Parthenon view and very friendly hosts. We didn't like the fact that there wasn't a laudry where we could wash personal clothes, as we were staying for 22 days. We liked most of all how this apartment had a big rooftop balcony where we could sit to eat our breakfast, sometimes even lunch if we were there, and that there was an amazing view of the Acropolis.
Area around. Big apartment. The location was a little removed and the area is probably gentrifying. The area to the South is much nicer than to the north or East. The space was great, it fit a lot of people. The apartment, Manolis so helpful, Great restaurants 5 min away. The location was not perfect, but still only a few blocks from exciting areas. Just to be clear, would not consider this a bad location by any means The apartment was clean and perfect for a large group!
Amazing view from the apartment. Monolo was a very goog host. Thanks a lot!
