In the late 1960s and early 1970s the eminent philosopher Nelson Goodman founded and directed Project Zero, a research group housed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Under Goodman’s leadership, Project Zero focused on the nature of artistic knowledge and the ways in which artistic skills and understanding can be enhanced through well-designed programs in schools and museums. Decades later, Project Zero remains an active research center; its current brief is broader, extending well beyond the arts, and involving affiliations with a range of educational institutions. Still, Goodman’s original mission – basic research on artistic knowledge and practice – remains a defining feature of Project Zero.
