New York Art Scene/Spring 2019
Learn to use the city's galleries and museums as your classroom. Each week, students visit a different exhibition. Course lectures illuminate the exhibitions in historical context and from a broader cultural perspective. Guest speakers include artists, gallery owners, curators, and art critics. We view a mix of contemporary and historical shows and compare the artworks we have seen. The New York art world offers eye-opening experiences for those who know how and where to look. This is the same course as NARH0010, but class sessions continue one hour longer for credit students.
