Huntington Arts Council Presents Conversations in the Arts: “The Arts and Propaganda”

November 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5 – $10

Conversations in the Arts offers participatory talks with artists and scholars from our community to help us enrich our arts experiences and more fully understand the values and contributions the arts add to society. Huntington Arts Council proudly offers this forum to help stimulate and promote the arts. Engaged inquiries and dialogues are a healthy way to explore ideas and facilitate collaborations and networking opportunities.

“The Arts and Propaganda” is discussed Nov. 14. Art may be used to persuade. It is not objective and is rarely the unadulterated self-expression of individual genius. It may be part of the agendas and demands of others, and it is a powerful method of expressing a point of view.


Barbara Applegate, Director, Steinberg Museum of Art/LIU Post
Leonard Lehrman, Founder & Director, The Metropolitan Philharmonic Chorus
John Torres, Director & Actor/Eastline Theatre


Marc Courtade, Executive Director/Huntington Arts Council
