Overview

REVEL for Prebles’ Artforms, Eleventh Edition conveys the dynamic environment that is the contemporary art landscape, as today’s artists interpret, challenge, and ultimately create the world around them. Author Patrick Frank guides students on a thematic exploration of art, explaining the reasons for creating art, the motivation for individual artists, and how art impacts its audience. The inclusion of more than 175 new images reflects Frank’s view that contemporary art provides the best path to art appreciation because of its currency and global nature.
