ART 2306 - African-American Art

Credits: 3 hrs
This course examines art created by African-American artists in the United States from the 19th century to the present day.  Painting, sculpture, architecture, textiles, and other artistic forms, are examined, considering formal style, subject matter, function, context and meaning.  A particular focus is placed on the emergence of African-American artists in the post-Civil War period, the Harlem Renaissance, mural production and artists working in contemporary society.  As much as possible, the course will examine works of art that can be viewed in person:  in the Diggs Gallery, O’Kelly Library and elsewhere on campus and in the local community.  There is an emphasis placed on writing in this course.
Pre-requisite(s): ART 2302   or permission of instructor
