How does the brain experience art? Why does it move us? Do aesthetics evolve biologically? The 2013 American University Arts Management Spring Colloquium explores the growing field of neuroaesthetics with an emphasis on the visual brain. Artist Shahin Shikhaliyev will give a lecture, followed by a panel discussion with Terry Davidson and Art Shapiro from the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience moderated by Andrew Taylor from the Arts Management program. The event is accompanied by an exhibition of Shikhaliyev's works which are on display Feb 5-24. Presented by the Arts Management Program in conjunction with the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience and the American University Museum.
