ART 122 Eco Art and Design

3 hours

This studio art course explores the diverse and exciting ways artists from different historical periods and backgrounds have thought about environmental challenges, exposing students to global environmental issues and asking them to create their own art as part of an engaged cultural dialogue. Students will create public art projects to raise awareness of environmental problems, including creating ephemeral art, presenting an eco-fashion show, and writing proposals for art installations to remediate environment problems. No artistic experience is needed. The inspiration for student projects will evolve from fieldtrips, thought-provoking videos and slides, discussions, and artistic exercises and experiments.
