“The Day Picasso Made Me Fall Down” by David O’Hara

Over at The Chronicle of Higher Education Review, this great Friday read about the convergence of art and learning by David O’Hara:  “The Day Picasso Made Me Fall Down.”  This article reminds me of some of the ideas in James Elkins’ Pictures and Tears, which offers reflection on the way disciplinary training in art history affects our emotive and rational engagement of art, with broader implications for higher education more generally.  Elkins’ work has become a favorite common reading among the Lilly Graduate Fellows.
