HNRS 125: The Arts in New York City: Seminar 1

Ross Wheeler

(Submission #129)

Course Description

Seminar 1 introduces University Scholars to the arts in New York City and the Cultural Passport. During the semester, students attend theatrical, operatic, and musical performances, exhibitions of visual art, and other highlights of the current cultural season. To enhance their appreciation of these experiences, students investigate the social, historical, and aesthetic context of the cultural work being performed and exhibited. By writing frequently about these and other examples of the visual, performing, and literary arts, students develop their analytic and communication skills. In addition to experiencing these art forms as an audience, students are encouraged to examine performances and exhibitions from the multiple perspectives of scholarship, creativity, and production.
