  Maxine Greene teaching, circa 1950's

"The Maxine Greene Center aspires to create an open space where no particular entity, individual or manifesto dominates. We welcome conversation, debate, and multiple perspectives pertaining to the evolution of aesthetic education and the notion of social imagination. As we well know, aesthetic education as we know it emerges from the thinking of many in psychology, philosophy and education, even well before Dewey. Ideas cannot be owned by institutions, or entities with borders that exclude as much as they include. The Center seeks to provide a place for free people, autonomous people - creating a space which we can enrich by our own experiences, naming a space that previously had no name."

        -Maxine Greene, 2012
