ART 102 American Art

3 hours 

This course examines the growth of art in the United States as it accompanied the development of the country from isolated agricultural colonies to a powerful industrial nation. The transformation of European styles into a uniquely American art that expressed the hopes and ideals of the new land is considered by reference to such topics as the impact of industrialism, the creation of cities, the movement westward, as well as the individual achievements of major painters, sculptors, and architects.
