Contributor’s Name (Your Name): Gideon Smith
Students will visit the art center of the world — New York — to explore the history of art. Students will work in groups to create daily itineraries to explore New York’s many museums and galleries. The intersession will begin in Cincinnati with an introduction to art history and its methods, learning about art’s place within individual societies and cultures, and how to navigate New York City. Students will travel to New York and stay overnight for the second week of intersession. Each student will use the knowledge they have gained the first week to research an artist and a work of art, present findings to the intersession at the museum or gallery and finally present their research in a gallery walk back at Clark.
