ANT 250 - Art, Artist, & Society

3 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.

This course looks at artists and their creations in a wide variety of human cultures, past and present. We will examine the recruitment of the artists and the purposes which artwork serves in traditional and contemporary societies. Cross cultural differences in aesthetic values, symbolism, and artistic techniques will be examined in detail. Additionally, we will look at the continuing influence that traditional art forms (African, Native American) have had on Western artists and on their on-going artistic tradition.
