CHUMS 2100 Fine and Performing Arts in Boston

This course explores the rich heritage of fine and performing arts in Boston through readings, exhibitions/performances and online resources. Starting with an analysis of the formal and expressive qualities of each artistic medium (visual arts, architecture, music, dance and drama), students will engage in describing, interpreting and evaluating works of art throughout the city to develop skills of aesthetic perception and response. Through individual and collaborative research projects students will gain increased knowledge of Boston's unique contribution to America's rich cultural and artistic history.
