ART 366 - History of Art: African American Artists


Historical survey of visual art works including by African American artists from the 17th century to the present, and of films by African American filmmakers. The works of selected African American dancers and musicians will be included to offer a more comprehensive representation. Art works and films are discussed in their historical, political, and social context focusing on issues of race and justice in the United States of America. Students will learn to describe, analyze, and interpret visual art works in the relevant historical context. Students have the option of taking this course as their Leadership Semester by co-enrolling in ART 399LS  and organizing and presenting a special class session (e.g., an African-American artist as speaker for the class, a field trip to see art work by African American artists, etc.) and a written reflective analysis of the entire course at the end of the semester. The planning, implementation, and evaluation required for these extra tasks will enhance the pillars of leadership identified by the College: Courage, Commitment, Confidence, and Competence.
