ART 220: American Indian Art


(1 Unit)
Examines the art history of American Indian cultures in the United States, with a focus on traditional arts at the time of European contact, in the immediate aftermath of that contact, and on the emergence of a contemporary arts culture within American Indian contexts. Also considers how mythology and stereotyping have created an image of “the Indian” and how that image was and is used in majority culture. Presents a broad array of resources, including Albion College’s collection of American Indian objects and prints, and public and private art collections. Wickre.
