LARTS 212 — Art and Aesthetics

3 credits
Fall
Faculty

The final semester of the Liberal Arts Core is designed to investigate the issues relevant to artists. These issues include the awareness of “art” and “aesthetics” as different but related categories, developed through discussion of form and content; the purpose of art; and the roles of both audience and artist in the production and reception of art. Other issues are the artist’s identity, responsibility to society, and creativity as explored from psychological, philosophical, and other perspectives. Readings and works of art considered are chosen from ancient and modern classics in art history, literature, philosophy and theory; and are considered in light of various critical approaches and discourses.
