Hello everyone and welcome to Week 12 of ART F262X.

Please do the following before SUNDAY, April 3 (11:59PM).

1. Go through the material in the American Art wing. You do not have to read or watch absolutely everything but make sure you have a good sense of the discussions surrounding each of the works.

2. Respond to the following forums on Slack:

Slack channel #week12part1

  • The art in this unit parallels what was happening in Europe for the most part but also includes distinctly American ideas. Discuss how the works from this week compare and contrast to concurrent European movements.

Slack channel #week12part2

  • Choose a work from the American art wing and discuss how it reflects a new and rapidly changing country.  Possible topics include military history, manifest destiny, and new experiments in democracy.
