ARTH 275 - Community Muralism: The Art of Public Engagement


(ARTS 275) FDR: HA
Experiential Learning (EXP): Yes
Credits: 4

Our nation is currently witnessing a community mural renaissance. Public murals help to create welcoming and inclusive public spaces, build and solidify community identity, commemorate individuals or events, arouse social consciousness or impact social change, and recognize the voices of traditionally disempowered groups. During the term, we trace the historical development of community murals. Students participate in studio exercises that give them experience with a variety of methods, materials, and techniques necessary to plan, design, and produce a largescale community mural. We produce and document a mural in collaboration with a local community partner. Lepage, Olson-Janjic.
