Art in Poughkeepsie, a team-taught, multi-disciplinary, intercollegiate course, will consider the emerging role of art in the City of Poughkeepsie from three perspectives: art as economic development, art as human development and art as art. There will be traditional classroom work as well as a strong emphasis on direct community research. The class findings will be issued as a written report, documentary video and photography show presented to the Mayor of the City of Poughkeepsie and the Common Council, as well as a separate press conference. The course is limited to five students from each of the participating Poughkeepsie Institute's colleges: Dutchess Community, Marist, SUNY New Paltz, The Culinary Institute of America and Vassar.
