Rozene, Stephanie, Why Art? Why Now? The Wick Fall 2012 Hartwick College, Oneonta, NY
I wrote the above article this past fall and it was recently published in the Fall 2012 edition of Hartwick College’s quarterly magazine, The Wick. The article responds to several questions regarding the future of the arts and how it fits into our contemporary, political and college landscape.
What is the purpose or role of the arts in our contemporary landscape? It’s a complex question further complicated by societal, cultural, political, economic, and historical concerns. how do we, in a society that so highly values technology, design, and innovation, measure the value of art and art making?
I hope you enjoy the article.

Stephanie Rozene will discuss her new site-specific work
This spring both, the main gallery and Window Projects, feature emerging female artists and celebrate their artistic achievements at a time that coincides with International Women’s Day (March 2011). Stephanie Rozene draws upon the fine line between design and the visual arts. Her work is the result of extensive research and gifted craftsmanship. Through the medium of ceramics (and with special attention to specific patterns, ornaments, and forms) she explores the politics of European ceramics and traces international developments in this medium back to the reigns of French kings Louis XV and Louis XVI. For the Window Projects, and with the assistance of SU students, Stephanie Rozene will exhibit porcelain tableware to turn the entire wall into a large dining table.
This project was supported in part by a Hartwick College Faculty Research Grant
