AH 207 - African American Art

(3.00 cr.)

This survey of African American art begins in the slave communities of eighteenth-century colonial America, continues with African American artists' adaptations of Western art in the nineteenth century, and ends with the political and aesthetic concerns of black artists in the twentieth century. Examples of architecture, decorative arts, folk art, painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and photography demonstrate how African American artists have enriched the art and culture of America. The social and political place of African Americans throughout America's history is also explored to provide a context for the struggle these artists experienced in pursuing their careers. IAF/IU
