Watch Democratization Panel

From blockbuster exhibitions to public art, You-tube and auto-tune, and the ability to make art and see art is expanding. Some see this as positive, some have expressed concern. Is greater accessibility a boon or a bust for the future of art?  Can art is for all and high art coexist? What has been the input from the community around Houston's Cultural Plan? The session will explore the question and its ramifications in multiple disciplines.
