Spaces - Concepts, Practicum and Intellectual Dialogues - 20098

In this connection, both courses discuss the concept of space but do so in different and complementary ways. While ART 112  centers around form, structure, design, and meaning, ARTH 243  uses those meanings as a transition to focus on history, environment, and context. In a sense, ARTH 243  cannot exist without the bases developed in ART 112 , and ART 112  is a stronger class because of the historical explorations of ARTH 243 . Students learn to see their place in a continuum of artistic productions in ART 112 , while they see the narratives that created those productions in ARTH 243  - and in both cases, they examine the concept of space as both a structural and a cultural consideration. The courses speak to each other in obvious ways and it is our hope to make the students aware of the strong ties that exist between the built environment and its consequent impact on the construction of meaning.
