Each student is responsible for collecting any and all works of art that he/she may submit in connection with a given course/studio within 14 days after the conclusion of the term, unless he/she makes special arrangements with the program. The program may use or dispose of any uncollected works as it deems appropriate.
What does artistic production look like during a time of cultural unrest? How did America’s poets help shape the political landscape of the American 60s and 70s, two decades that saw the rise of the Black Panthers, “Flower Power,” psychedelia, and Vietnam War protests? Through reading poetry, studying films like Easy Rider, and engaging with the music of the times (Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors) we will think about art’s ability to move the cultural needle and not merely reflect the times but pose important questions about race, gender, class, sexuality, and identity at large.
