The Aesthetics & Values seminar of the FIU Honors College examines the vital role visual art plays in the social and cultural dialogue surrounding controversial issues. It investigates how artists have challenged or enforced authority by creating new aesthetics. The heart of the course is the Aesthetics & Values Research and Exhibition Project. This annual project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their resourcefulness and creativity through the research, curation, and organization of an on-campus exhibition of contemporary Miami artists.
The artists in this exhibition include: Felecia Chizuko Carlisle, Elisabeth Condon, Peter Diesen Hosfeld, Moira Holohan, Monica McGivern, Brandon Opalka, Christina Pettersson, Carolina Sardi and Kristen Thiele.
