Editorial Reviews

Review

"Discovering the similarities and differences among the ways human being express visually their understanding of their basic political, religious, and social values offers students opportunities to broaden their awareness and appreciation of their own culture as well as the life experiences of other people and cultures throughout the world."

"This is the first art appreciation text for the postmodern world. The authors destroy the fallacy of a largely western canon and reveal the breadth, complexity, and beauty of art produced around the world. Likewise, they remove art from the walls and vitrines of the museum and go as far as a textbook can to put the objects back into their human contexts: in rituals, on bodies, in physical and social spaces."

"This book really is on the right track."

"I found the book engaging and interesting. I firmly believe that today's student should be able to read and understand clearly presented material and that material should introduce new and challenging concepts and this text lives up to this standard."

"EXPLORING ART presents intelligent explanations of the purposes and functions of art and how meaning can be derived from them." "EXPLORING ART offers wonderful examples of themes and clearly explains the formal elements and principles as well as resources for learning more about art and using art in one's life." "EXPLORING ART contains a great range of information all while remaining exciting and well written with the audience in mind, allowing the reader to enjoy the content while stimulating critical thinking about it."

I was surprised to receive my text book on monday when I had only purchased late afternoon the Friday before. I'm pleased with the book. I only wish they had put the edition number in the title too. I was a little surprised to receive the second edition. I needed the third but my professor doesn't mind the usage of a 2nd edition so I'm ok, but I can only imagine the hassle for a future customer. Over all, though, i am pleased with the book.

When purchasing the book it indicated that the CD-Rom and InfoTrac was included in the sale. The receipt that was recevied with the book also indicates the CD-Rom and InfoTrac were included. However, both were not inlcuded.
