CRIT 342 Art, Media and Society

3 credits 45.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

This class explores the evolution of art since the industrial revolution and the rise of the middle class. Central to this exploration are topics like the conflicts or collaborations between the fine arts and commercialism, including mass media and new technology, from Romanticism and the arts and crafts movement to Pop Art and the Web. Issues of authorship, production, quality, and permanence will be on our radar. Who determines taste and why? Does high art have a future?
