ART 190 - Considering the Sense of Sight

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
In class discussions and short papers we explore the wonders of the sense of sight from multiple perspectives, past and present, focusing on how sight has inspired major creative achievements and discoveries in the history of both art and science. Examples from film and literature illustrate how the theme of sight can shape narratives in film and literature as well as art. Throughout the semester the collections of the Frances Lehman Loeb Loeb Art Center provide access to original objects for individual and group presentations. Susan Kuretsky.

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