ADAH 225 - Myth, Meaning and Symbol in Art


Credits: Three (3)
From the beginning, humans have used myths and symbols to structure and understand the visible and unseen forces that shape the physical world. This course surveys the visual representations of these myths and the use of symbols in art from the Paleolithic period to the present. Students will gain an understanding of how images manipulate and define or redefine mythologies and how meanings are embedded within visual culture. This course is designed to provide students with no previous background in art or art history with the knowledge and ability to read and comprehend meaning within works of art from western and non-western cultures.
