Dr. Curtis Carter
On Wednesday, March 9, the students in Dr. Krause’s
Alternative Investments and AIM classes will be visited by Dr. Curtis Carter.
He will address both the personal and the societal importance of the arts as
well as information on ‘art as an investment.'
Dr. Carter is a professor of Philosophy at Marquette
University, focusing on aesthetics. He received a PhD from the University of
Boston. His greatest accomplishment at Marquette has been the creation of the Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum
of Art. Dr. Carter was the founding
director from 1984-2007.
The Haggerty Museum has built a greater appreciation
for the arts in the Milwaukee and Marquette University community. He also teaches several
classes on the philosophy of art. It is truly one of the gems of the Marquette campus!
Dr. Carter serves as an associate professor at Marquette
University's Les Aspin Center in Washington DC. At the Aspin Center, Carter
teaches a class titled "Arts in a Democratic Society", through which
he attempts to integrate the importance of the arts in a Democratic society.
The class consists of tours of art museums, historical landmarks and buildings
in the DC area, visits to performances at the Kennedy Center.
serves as vice president of the International Association for Aesthetics and is
a board member of the International Research Center for Aesthetics and Art
Theory (IRCA), based in Rome, Italy. Carter also serves on the Milwaukee
Art Museum Fine Arts Society Board of Directors --- and if this isn’t enough, he has
recently expanded his teaching to China.
Dr. Carter’s course in the Philosophy of Art again will be
taught on campus in the Fall 2016 semester – in addition to his Arts in a Democratic
Society course at the Les Aspin. Dr. Krause said, “I encourage my students to
that his class in the Fall. This is an outstanding course and it usually fills
quickly – so sign up soon. Also I know that in the Spring semester of 2017 he
will be offering course on arts/aesthetics and city life – which will include
an April 2017 conference with national and international speakers. I am excited
about his visit to the AIM classes this week.”
