This workshop is part of the Golden Triangle Curriculum Cooperative’s 2017 Summer Institute.
This profusely illustrated survey course will investigate chronologically the Euro-American artists who depicted the Trans-Mississippi West frontier, and how their works interpreted and critiqued the westward expansion of Euro-American culture. Emphasis will be focused on Montana and Northern Rocky Mountain artists depicting Native American culture. Topics discussed will include art as a medium for myths about the West and art serving science. A trip to the CM Russell Museum will be part of the workshop.
Enrollment is limited, and the deadline to register is May 31, 2017. Visit Golden Triangle Curriculum Cooperative’s website for information about their 2017 Summer Institute and other workshops available. OPI renewal units or graduate credits from MSU – Northern are available.
