ART 280 Study Away: Art and Design in Context

Engages students in critical discussions; unique experiential learning; cultural and historical location-based research; and production of original works of art/design. In preparation for the trip, students research their destination and discuss the ideas of space and place as they pertain to the location’s history, culture, and identity. While away, students experience the challenges and opportunities inherent in navigating an unfamiliar place and synthesizing their observations into a creative form. Upon return, students compose a body of creative work ranging from art, writing, research, photography, or other media and curate a group exhibition.
