FYSP 160 - Everyday Art: On the Uses of Beautiful Things

 4HU, WRi
Second Semester.  This seminar investigates some ordinary questions about art that seem banal until one stops to think about them.  We ask, for example, What is art for?  Why are some things “works of art,” but not others?  In particular, we confront the fascinating social issues connoted by words like “artist” and “artisan,” “work of art” and “artifact.”  Approximately half the class meetings occur in the Allen Memorial Art Museum.
