ART 227 Haitian Art & Culture

3 hours 

This course examines the rich and complex religious, social, and political art and culture of Haiti in its global and historical context, with an eye toward exploring social controversies and misperceptions surrounding a people and their culture. The course begins with the sculptures of the indigenous Americans who were annihilated by the Spanish shortly after the arrival of Columbus in the 15th century, and culminates in the 20th century with the burst of creativity that placed Haitian artists on the world stage.
