Instructor: Debbie Dempsey West
The course explores important movements and art trends in the United States and profiles this country’s most successful artists. Some presentations are PowerPoints designed by Debbie West; some are films and media pieces spotlighting interesting expressions and leanings in the Humanities. Too often, Americans themselves are not familiar with the great artistic legacy of their own country. While many study the great artists of Europe, the remarkable painters of our own national tradition may be neglected. Discover what is uniquely “American” about American art. This course is crucial to fully understanding the story of our great nation.
