ART 247 Appropriated Art (Found Object) (3 credits)
Making art from everyday objects is regarded as a form of sculptural expression. This class will focus on both the history and contemporary styles of Found Object art making. Students will be required to both find/ purchase objects and re-configure them into sculptures. Common venues for acquiring objects will be explored. These include flea markets, thrift stores, recycling centers, garage sales, and your own basements/ attics. Once acquired we will explore the various methods of re-configuration into objects of art. This course may be taken as an independent study.
Prerequisites: ART 141 or equivalent.
