Global Arts: Windows into the Hearts of Other Cultures

MAS 610

Can we appreciate the arts of cultures foreign to us? Is translation necessary? Does a culture’s sense of time and space affect its artistic expressions? Global arts provide a helpful window into the hearts of other cultures. In this course we will expand our ways of thinking/sensing/feeling to prepare for a comparative exploration of the arts of four different cultures beyond our own. We survey the past and present arts of these countries for clues to common themes and ideas while attempting to discover the distinct world views represented.
