UMMA invites Michigan art educators to an exciting full-day workshop with Art 21's Joe Fusaro. Noted for blurring the boundaries between art and life, Fluxus artists challenged the notion of high art by creating unassuming, often humorous objects and performances and demonstrating the idea that "anything can be art and anyone can do it." Art21 has been a leader in the chronicling of contemporary art and artists through its Peabody Award-winning series, Art in the Twenty-First Century. Through the television series and other vehicles, Art21 has created a new paradigm for teaching and learning about the creative process. Recently they launched Art21 Educators, a professional development initiative designed to cultivate and support K–12 educators interested in bringing contemporary art, artists, and ideas into their classrooms. Join us as Art21 meets Fluxus and experience bold new strategies for exploring contemporary art.

The exhibition Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and was generously supported by Constance and Walter Burke, Dartmouth College Class of 1944, the Marie-Louise and Samuel R. Rosenthal Fund, and the Ray Winfield Smith 1918 Fund. UMMA's installation is made possible in part by the University of Michigan Health System, the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Arts at Michigan, and the CEW Frances and Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund.
