Description
ART IN PUBLIC: INCLUSION , IDENTITY, AND ACTIVISM
This course is an introduction to the social, political, and artistic issues surrounding the creation and interpretation of public monuments and public art. We will focus on our local urban environment, particularly the rich collection of works in and around Oakland, but we will also put these local works in larger national and global contexts. The course emphasizes hands-on learning, through multiple site visits, encounters with the works of art in their real urban contexts, and individual and group exercises building on these encounters.
