Artists have raised their voices over the political, social, and cultural events of their times, providing a frame of reference for collective experiences of the individual and society in the process of incremental and revolutionary transformation. The course is an exploration of iconic masterpieces from the canon of art history—alongside popular culture from the world of film, music, newspapers, and television—that provides an inquiry into the intersection of 20th- and 21st-century milestones, crises, and creative vision.

INSTRUCTOR: Dale Fisher is curator of education at the UI Museum of Art and lecturer in the UI Art Education Program. He holds degrees in art education and studio arts and has 31 years of teaching experience at the university and K-12 levels, including with at-risk student populations.
