It’s almost time for another round of the Inquisition. The quiz forum that aims to answer all of your burning questions about the arts. On Thursday, January 7th audiences gathered in Benches & Binoculars to witness our panel of experts strut their stuff while answering questions about art and art history.
One moment that garnered a lot of “OHHH’s” during the game was a question posed to the panel about the difference between art and craft. That question was submitted by audience member and Walker tour guide Curt Lund. The answers were quite eloquent and simple. Hopefully it shed some light on a subject that always sparks considerable debate. Click on the video above to hear MPR’s Marianne Combs, Walker curator Peter Eleey, local artist Andy Sturdevant, and Walker curatorial fellow Bartholomew Ryan answer the question. When you’re done watching it, we at the Walker want you to submit your own open ended question about art at this link walkerart.org/inquisition. We will choose the best question and the winner will be guaranteed tickets to the February 11th Inquisition and a Salty Dog!
