"Ignorance of Art" Contest

This contest will soon be open for 2013-2014. Please check back regularly for updates.


MARK TWAIN
believed that understanding art inhibits the viewer’s ability to enjoy artwork. According to Twain, a viewer who supposedly understands art can actually “find nothing in pictures but blemishes.” By contrast, a viewer who is ignorant of art often has a deeper appreciation of it. The Twain Lecture Series shares and embraces Twain’s ignorance of art and presents the “Ignorance of Art” Contest. Entrants will create artwork highlighting Twain’s life and works. Winning pieces will be used in publications and mailings for The Twain Lecture Series.
