FALL SESSION  |  Mondays, Oct. 2 - Nov. 6, 2017

The series will explore the last of the coherent and named movements in the fine arts; traveling to Germany, France, America and points beyond.  The golden age of big painting was also an era in which the marketplace, not critics, created the art and artists.  While careers rose and fell, the eighties, the decade of greed and decadence in fashion, introduced a new and distinctive luxurious interior design suitable for the Guilded Age.

WINTER SESSION  |  Mondays, Jan. 22 - Mar. 5, 2018 (no lecture Feb. 19)

For the last twenty years, marked by a layering of the art market, the art world has fractured internationally, expanding from small galleries to large art fairs. The role of traditional institutions came under question as art and design take up a new role -- politics.  Although the culture wars were ignited in the eighties, the real fires roared through the nineties as artists encountered controversy.

SPRING SESSION  |  Mondays, Mar. 19 - Apr. 23, 2018

Since the eighties, fine art has become more technologically involved, raising questions of the future of art and design.  Should an artist follow tradition, a designer look to precedent or should one plunge into the twenty-first century, going beyond the museum to the Internet?  The roles and choices of artitsts in today's new technological world will be explored and discussed.
