ART 375 Art and Material Culture

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: none

This course explores three cultural case studies to understand the relationship between art, aesthetics, and material culture production. The case studies will be drawn from prehistoric, historic, and contemporary cultures to give a broad understanding of the way in which a culture’s unique needs and environment shape the kinds of art objects it produces. Development of visual awareness, analytical thinking, connoisseurship, and theoretical foundations will be addressed.
