Inhaltsangabe: For over sixty years, artist Don Seiden has lived the aesthetic philosophy he shares in Art Works, inspiring students and colleagues throughout the world. His message is simple: No matter who you are, creating art allows you to see your life more completely. To document this philosophy, Seiden began working with a writer, Amy Davis. Art Works weaves an intimate dialogue between Seiden and Davis throughout each chapter, sharing glimpses of the personal and professional journey this aesthetic philosophy guided for each of them. Thus, what began as a book based on Seiden's own experiences as an artist, educator, and therapist grew into a twenty-year collaboration and rich friendship with Davis, despite nearly forty years difference in age. The result is a unique blend of insight and inspiration that defies categorization. Like art, the book reveals new possibilities each time you read it.
