Class: Kerrin Meis - Masterpieces in University Art Museums

07/16/2014 5:00 pm

Four Wednesdays • July 16-Aug 6 • 3:15-5:00 pm • $100

 

 

Join art historian Kerrin Meis in an odyssey to some of the finest art collections in the country, all located in university art museums. We study masterpieces from all periods, visiting collections including Dumbarton Oaks in Washington D.C., the Fogg Museum, The Yale Art Gallery, and museums at Smith College, Oberlin College, and Dartmouth among others. The works of art will be discussed in terms of content. We ask how a professor teaching another discipline might have students engage with these works and see how art steps in when other means of communication fail. Participants may want to plan a field trip to the University Art Museum at Stanford.

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years and now lectures for the College of Marin and Dominican University and leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
