FA 330 American Art

3 credits

This course surveys the art of the United States from the Colonial era through the 21st century. We will consider broad stylistic tendencies in various regions and periods, and examine specific artists and works of art in historical and social contexts. Students will trace varying perspectives of an “American Art” through an array of themes, that may include the landscape (wilderness, Manifest Destiny, rural settlement, and urban development); the family and gender roles; the founding rhetoric of freedom and antebellum slavery; notions of artistic modernism through the dawn of the 20th century; and the national identity of “America” in today’s globalized world.

Prerequisite(s): FA 203  or FA 204
