This class will introduce historic examples and examine recent developments in terms of participatory art, community art, interactions, place-based art, public art, site specific art and art in public places, both locally and in broader international situations. Students who work with public space in the context of communication such as the Internet, social media or locally as a condition of collectives and collaboratives might find this interdisciplinary condition an interesting alternative beyond the normal space for art production.

Sculpture: Internship

Course No. SCU399/499  Credits: 0.0

Elective credit can be given on a case-by- case basis for an internship developed by student through the career services office, with advance permission of instructor and head of department.

Sculpture: Multimedia: From Space + Time

Course No. SCU241/341/441  Credits: 3.0

This course is designed to explore materials (traditional and non-traditional) and ideas of sculpture outside of the formats usually associated with it. The goal is for students to push the boundaries of sculpture as installation art, video, and film. Projects will deal with visibility and invisibility, ephemerality, sound, time, gender, and social issues in relation to sculpture, and will use indoor and outdoor site-specific or performance-oriented formats. Fundamental aspects of this course are the analysis, expression, experimentation, and deconstruction of existing values and the reconstruction of one's own relation to popular culture, theory and other fields of interest (such as science, music, philosophy, etc.).

Senior Studio: BFA Research

Course No. PTG 421M  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Corrie Slawson | Lane Cooper

Required for all 4th year Painting majors and open as an elective to any senor-level student with a prerequisite of Intro to Painting or permission of the instructor or Painting Chair. This course focuses on developing the student’s individual work as it relates to their subject and their means of making work. Emphasis will be on the strategies for constructing the meaning of the work in terms of materials and the way the work is read by a viewer. Students will read work, develop and discuss intention through critiques and discourse. The goal is to develop an understanding of the criteria, standards and values promoted by the artist and how these come to be understood by their audience by exploring the relationship between subject, form, material and process as they relate to content. Offered fall.
