Have you ever gone to a museum of modern or contemporary art and thought “I have no idea what is going on?” On this episode of Special Collections, we learn about aesthetics—the branch of philosophy dealing with art theory. We interview Travis Anderson, a professor of philosophy at Brigham Young University, to learn about his take on what art is. Additionally, we also interviewed Joe Ostraff, a professor of Art at Brigham Young University—to learn about his take on public art installations. The Special Collections team talks all things art, philosophy, and Hall of Breakfast in our roundtable discussion.
