In Memoriam - Elliot W. Eisner
March 10, 1933 - January 10, 2014

The arts enable us to have experience we can have from no other source and through such experience to discover the range and variety of what we are capable of feeling.

The International Journal of Education and the Arts invited Professor Eisner's former students, his colleagues and mentors, and others inspired by his teaching, friendship and scholarship to submit substantive remembrances, photographs, or video clips for inclusion in this memorial to Elliot W. Eisner. Dr. Eisner was an intellectual leader in the fields of arts education, curriculum studies, qualitative and arts-based research, and beloved mentor to many of those whose work has appeared in this journal.
