US 250 Exploring Art in Philadelphia


This class utilizes integrative learning to investigate the variety of artistic venues available in Philadelphia and the surrounding region. This seminar course will meet once a week at an arts venue in the Philadelphia/ Glenside area with mandatory asynchronous assignments offered via Canvas. Content delivered on Canvas will introduce, explore, and investigate the organizing principles governing art and design and will explore content and concepts in contemporary art and practice that students will experience at venues off campus. Student presentations and reflective journaling and notetaking will analyze and synthesize the experiences we have at each location. Exploring Art in Philadelphia serves as a way for students to connect what they are learning in the classroom to the variety of venues and experiences in the cultural artistic landscape around them. The course offers a working definition, through varied examples, of the artistic zeitgeist in the Philadelphia region.
