The concept of cultural literacy as a process of becoming socially empowered is developed. A comparison is made between “Getty-ized DBAE” with an approach to art education informed by the development of cultural literacy. How these approaches differ, not only in their design but in the fundamental goals which motivate and guide them is illustrated. An outline is presented of a pedagogical structure around which a cultural literacy approach to art education can be organized and implemented.
