  2. The Power and Politics of Art: Italy/Germany Dr. Richard Strauch, Professor of Music rstrauch@whitworth.edu, ext. 4587/Music 110 3 credits in Fine Arts Meets FINE ARTS or GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES requirement Description: Why should anyone care about Art? Is it worth valuing and supporting, or is it just an expensive luxury for the wealthy? In “The Power and Politics of Art”, you will wrestle with the big questions of Art’s purpose in and value to a culture – including our own. You will experience the history of western art, from Ancient Greece to the 21st century, and examine its relationship to culture and worldview. Through on-site visits to artistic, historic and cultural sites in Rome, Florence, Vienna, and Berlin, students will become more familiar with the various artistic styles and many of the facets of the interaction between art, community, and political power. In addition through the experience of living in major European metropolitan centers, you will become aware of the various cultural resources located in major cities, and develop confidence in accessing them, and also develop confidence in using basic cross- cultural skills, such as using public transportation and functioning in places where English is not the dominant language. Prerequisite course FA 396 Power and Politics of Art Preparation (1 credit, time TBA) This course will meet once a week throughout the fall, and is designed to prepare you to better interact with the art and culture you will experience in the program. What’s so great about this program? Dr. Strauch has been leading this program since January 2001. The course mixes some structured group experiences (guided tours, group visits to galleries and concerts, etc.) with ample time to explore and soak in four great European cities. The pace is not rushed, so that you have time to experience, reflect, and have a blast. And by the way, the food is great. (Dinners are included in the price of the program.) ANTICIPATED COST OF PROGRAM: $3975 INCLUDES DINNERS!!!
