Art, Aesthetic, & Meaning: Communicating Concepts on the Human Condition
Wednesdays 1 pm
March 9/16/23/30

How does art matter to us? Is it merely a pleasurable diversion or an attempt at a deeper understanding of life? Join us as we investigate how, over the course of time, the arts reflect sensory and aesthetic explorations and serve as expressions of the human experience.
Class topics include:
Expression & Representation
Art As Public Memory
Art, Race, Gender, & Culture
