Credits: 3 in fall or winter, 4 in spring

Selected topics in art history with written and oral reports. May be repeated for degree credit if the topics are different.

Winter 2020, ARTH 295A-01: African-American Art (3). A survey of African-American art and culture from the 17th century to the present. We investigate work in a wide range of media—painting, sculpture, quilts, photography, music, ephemera—produced during this period by people of African descent in North America. This course focuses on the social and political context surrounding artistic production and the ways that scholars have worked to define "African-American art" in relation to Euro-American art. Course participants travel to the National Museum of African American Art and Culture in Washington, D.C. (HA) Lazevnick.
