THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF ARTS

Houston, Texas    [[underlined] ]CONVENTION 1957 [[/underlined]]    April 3 - 6


[[underlined]] THEME [[/underlined]]

"The Perpetual Discovery" - An Investigation of What the 20th Century Has Contributed to Creative Thought and Expression

The Convention theme is intended to embrace many aspects of the development of style:  its philosophical basis, its psychological origins, its dissemination and establishment, and - in the case of the visual arts - the means by which it is presented to the public by the contemporary museum.

Discussions will involve not only an examination of new directions and achievements of the past 57 years, but a thoughtful, provocative inquiry into the totally new concepts which may develop in the future.
