Art and Beauty

Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


Is beauty really just in the eye of the beholder, or is there more to it than that? And what, if anything, is the connection between art and beauty? Is there such a thing as ugly art? If so, is beautiful art more valuable than ugly art?

This presentation is part of Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art lecture series.
