Public Art: Memory, Landscape, and Artist as Activist

Academic Year: 
In-depth exploration of art in the public sphere. Students build an understanding of public art sparked by practical experience designing and developing projects. Theoretical aspects of contemporary public art, and an introduction to the range of current public art practices will be introduced through readings, lectures, and artist's talks. The combination of practical hands-on technique and theoretical ideology will enable students to fully develop their own project within the class. Students are billed a materials fee. Prerequisites: Art 20D, 20H, 23, 28, 29, 37, 40, 120, 121, 122, 124, 125, 129, 180B, 183, 188, or 189; and two non-sculpture/intermedia public art lower-division studios (Art 15-38 or CMPS 25, or CMPM 25).
