ID : 1195   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Art can give voice and shape to changes occurring in a culture and society, as artists often weave into their work the historical, political, and economic forces influencing them. When early American artists built and imagined their new world, they were responding not only to their own history and culture (European) but also to the indigenous peoples of North America. This cross-cultural exchange is critical to the aesthetic and historical identity of American Art. Join us as Dr. Roberta Katz, art historian and lecturer, looks at Native American art and culture that inspired early colonial artists.

This event is free and open to all current OLLI members. Registration is required. 

Speaker: Dr. Roberta Katz, art historian, lecturer, School of Professional Studies at Northwestern University

Our Leading Edge lecture series is held at lunchtime or the end of the day on the Evanston campus. The series is free and open to all OLLI members.
