ART 340 - Environmental Activism: Science and Art Converge


3 credits Crosslisted With: ISCI 340
Both art and science are a means of investigation as both involve ideas, observations, theories, and hypotheses.  In both disciplines, ideas are tested in places where mind and hand come together - the laboratory and studio.  In this course, students will explore the relationship between science and art by investigating historic and contemporary environmental change (through considerations of topics such as biodiversity loss, climate change, and landscape alteration), and how artists visually communicate these issues as artist activists. Students will collaboratively select an environmental issue to research and create a visual work to heighten awareness or call the public to action.
