AMST 160 - Art and Social Change in the United States

1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 160 ) In this first-year writing seminar, we explore relationships between art, visual culture, and social change in the United States. Focusing on twentieth and twenty-first century social movements, we study artists and communities who have sought to inspire social change–to cultivate awareness, nurture new ideas, offer fresh visions, promote dialogue, encourage understanding, build and strengthen community, and inspire civic engagement and direct action–through creative visual expression. Lisa Collins.

Open only to freshmen; satisfies the college requirement for a Freshman Writing Seminar.

Not offered in 2017/18.
