In this WonderRoot Artist Feature, presented in conjunction with the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, art curator and historian Sarah Lewis talks with WR interactive media manager Floyd Hall about her new book, The Rise, which examines the distinction between mastery and perfectionism, the role of criticism in the arts, and how to reinvigorate dialogue around arts funding and education. Lewis also discusses how she recognizes innovation in the arts, and reflects on the current pop culture appeal of art and her past curatorial work with Jay-Z and the Barclays Center (Brooklyn, NY).
