ART 2020 - Ancient Art


3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered once every two years.

Art History. This course is a survey of the art and artifacts produced in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Middle East from the prehistoric through the classical periods, with an emphasis on the cultures of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Special attention is paid to the cultural function of art, and the fascination these distant cultures exert on the modern era. This course explores how “art” is defined and understood in ways very different from our own modern Western definitions, and investigates how images create, maintain, and re-interpret cultural norms.
