If any of you listen to NPR, their going to be talking about the reemergence of beauty in art. I didn't catch the time, sorry. I figured those of you who were following the "Fine art with a capital F" topic might be interested in listening in.

Just FYI, the show was already broadcast, it was a local (Chicago-WBEZ)
show called Odyssey. If you're interested, you can listen to a streaming
audio of the show. Go here: www.wbez.org/frames.asp?H...od_ra1.htm
It's the show on June 17 "The Aesthetic of Beauty" I only caught the last half myself, but it was really interesting. The idea came from a book "Venus in Exile: The Rejection of Beauty in 20th Century Art" by Wendy Steiner. Sounds like I have another book to read.

Thanks for the link, Connie. And for the Steiner book, which I'm now going to go track down....
