IN-PERSON: The Arts of Mexico   

**This class will be taught In-Person**
 

**This is a 3 week course**
 

Explore the powerful art produced in the large, varied, and exciting country on our southern border. We’ll start with a look at the art and architecture of early sites such as Teotihuacan, but the focus will be on the post-Conquest world when indigenous traditions blend with those of newer arrivals and international art trends. We’ll look at the colonial era of the UltraBaroque, the 19th century, the Revolutionary years, Mexican Surrealism, and contemporary art production. Discover Mexico’s unique and influential contribution to the global art community.
