TAM: art history lecture series ending soon

The Western Modern Art History lecture series by Ron Fields will be ending in three weeks – if you have not yet attended the four mandatory lectures (any four you chose from the total of 18 lectures), please make sure to attend these last three lectures.

Abstract Expressionism: The American Sublime
Tuesday, April 10 from 6-7 pm
The power of color, of freedom, and of an aesthetic coming into its own was at the heart of art that burst on the scene in New York City created by artists as Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Willem DeKoonig, Jackson Pollack and Clyfford Still.

New Dada, Pop and Op: The American Mundane
Tuesday, April 17 from 6-7 pm

The mass market culture of the 1950s and ‘60s became not only the subject matter for artist like Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and Claes  Oldenburg, but its objects became the actual material of their art.

New Realism, Minimal and Conceptual and Minimalism
Tuesday, April 24 from 6-7 pm

By the end of the twentieth century, artists such as Donald Judd and Agnes Martin had distilled the world to its most basic formal elements: color, shape, and structure. Other artists such as Christo and Robert Smithson took these concepts and used the natural and built environment as their canvas.

Thanks for your time!
