November 18, 2012: Art Philosophy and Outdoor Adventures

Professor Dominic Lopes is a philosopher of art and the mind at the University of British Columbia. He spoke with our contributor Naomi Elias about what makes art art, why video games constitute a form of “computer art,” and how technology and visual arts influence one another.

Brian Bevacqua is the founder and president of Vermont Youth Adventures. He tells our contributor Chelsea Lim how outdoor experiences like whitewater kayaking, hiking, and snowshoeing can teach kids life lessons — and even improve their grades.

VYA’s “Get-A-Way Give-A-Way” fundraiser is Saturday, December 1, from 10am-3pm, at 389 Hotel Road in Brownsville, VT. For more information, visit vtyouthadventures.com.
