Fall 2014 not offered
This course examines the production and reception of American visual culture from 1913 to the present, paying particular attention to painting, sculpture, and photography. Students will study theory and criticism in addition to the formal qualities of American visual art to examine how artists engaged and interpreted the world around them in material form, as well as how American visual culture helped shape and promulgate certain attitudes toward nationhood, race, class, gender, and sexual orientation in the 20th century.
