HAD-106 Art and Design History in New York City First Year Seminar
This course is the first in a series of yearly seminars that scaffold and guide HAD majors. It will introduce first year students in the History of Art and Design BA program to historical research and analysis of art and design using the art, design, and architecture of New York City as a case study. Students will use the city's resources and cultural institutions to learn about New York City's art and design history. A focus on major monuments and institutions as well as the design of the physical and social infrastructure including the city's contemporary art and design landscape will introduce students to the tools of primary research, central works of art and design history, and NYC sites that will become key resources for the rest of their education.
