EVST 250 Art and Environment

While one view of art making would suggest elite tools and materials available at a premium through specialty shops, many artists from all over the world-for reasons of politics, philosophy, economics, environmental concerns or conceptual relevance to the given idea-have engaged with found objects and materials to create beautiful, compelling, and revolutionary works of art. In this course we will explore artists and art practices that function in this manner and investigate through studio practice ideas and methods for producing such work. Our investigations will focus on artists whose work is involved with environmental concerns, broadly defined. We will explore and produce work that engages with environment in a social, political, and cultural context. [H]
