The Art of Collecting: A Political Investment, a lecture by Joseph Rosa
Join a wide-ranging and lively conversation with Joseph Rosa, UMMA Director, about the political effects on today's art market. What makes an artist "hot"? What politics drive emerging talent onto the auction block? How do we understand the ever-increasing prices for works by artists like Jeff Koons versus cherished Old Masters? Learn how museums keep pace with acquisitions, and what they do when they discover forgotten Picassos or are pressured to sell priceless masterpieces. Director of UMMA since July 2010, Rosa also chairs the President's Advisory Committee on Public Art and is a Professor of Architecture at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. This lecture is part of a series "Laugh or Cry: It's Politics: Politics in the Arts", offered by the OLLI at Michigan, and takes place at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center in Ann Arbor. Must be an OLLI member to attend. Annual Membership Fee is $20.00. Fee for lecture is $10 or $30 for all 6. Please register at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
