Southern Art?

Time and Place: Date: Tuesday, July 6, 2010 Time: 7:00pm - 9:00m Location: Georgia State University - Ernest G. Welch Gallery

Does simply living in the South make one a "Southern Artist?" If one makes work about a particular location in the South, or engages in Bible belt philosophies or focuses on issues of racism and the legacies of the plantation economy, are they then a "Southern Artsit?" Can an artist successfully utilize a Southern stereotype without the risk of being misunderstood? Are ideas about the South shaped by insiders or imposed by outsiders?
