ARTH 3400 - Art in America - Writing Intensive

Hours: 4
In this course we will examine the role and function of the visual arts in Central and North America. By taking a historical approach and studying this topic from the fifteenth through the mid twentieth centuries we will gain greater understanding of changing concerns and values in American society as conveyed through images, objects, monuments, and structures. We will consider the nature of American experience as rooted in cross-cultural exchanges while also studying the presence of the past in our communities.
