Art 121.3 (96)

Introduction to History of Art II - Baroque to Contemporary

CRN: 25939

Term: 2 (3 lecture hours)

Time: Thursday, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Professor: Grant McConnell

Description:

This course is great for students interested in how our visual culture came to be. The art which follows the Renaissance is central to our understanding of all things visual in the present day: contemporary design, architecture, digital imagery, commercial and fine art, etc.   Documentaries, short videos and image projections animate our classroom lectures. The working lives of the artists are considered, (ie. how do artists and creative people make a living?). We look at the great art of the past and how it continues to influence the present.
