Aesthetic experience can be transformed into a truly stunning painting. It does not only produce a beautiful work, but also has a soul as a place of learning. It is a brief description of an exhibition entitled “Education and Creativity” held by the Faculty of the Arts and Design, the Indonesia Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar, in the Bali Museum last August.
The exhibition intended to support the visit museum campaign displayed 100 works of the art by students. Their scratches could present distinctive color for museum visitors. Therefore, they did not only enjoy the relics in the museum but also the exhibition of the contemporary arts and design. By presenting a variety of works of the art, they looked to become a benchmark of the exploration made by the academic artists.
“Aside from implementing the learning process, this exhibition also aims to obtain an evaluation from the public and the art aficionados outside the campus,” said the Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design (FSRD) of the Indonesia Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar, Ni Made Rinu, amidst the exhibition. According to Rinu, the creative art process required a lengthy, profound and extensive exploration considering the aesthetical creation space was very diverse. Summary of the aesthetic experience would become the milestone in the competition against the preceding artists. “By doing so, it can engender many professional and civilized art thinkers and practitioners,” she hoped.
