Architecture and art
Art at High Noon! Workshops for seniors
Topic: Architecture and art
Presented by: Daria Bręczewska-Kulesza
20 Gdańska St.
A series of meetings devoted to art and culture in a broad sense, addressed to people aged 60+. The meetings offer discussions on contemporary art, and creative activities that develop cognitive processes, improving manual dexterity by learning different art techniques and forms of art.
Is architecture an art? Can a building be compared to a sculpture? Can a city, with its centuries-old organic structure, present a logical architectural and urban argument, show us its history through the shaping of its streets, squares, impressive buildings and smaller constructions? Can buildings arouse emotions? Are we dealing with a living, still developing story “at the fingertips”? To an astute observer, the city seems like an open book full of stories and symbols. At the workshop, we will encourage you to carefully watch the environment and decipher its obvious or hidden meanings.
