ARTH 153 - American Art
American City: Life and Structure (A Biography Through Form)
Examines the urban life and form, content, and history of six American
cities (Detroit, Boston, New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles) using as a touchstone the life story of Malcolm X, who had ties to all of these places.  From visionary plan to economic and social content to everyday realities, the course explores how a city makes man and man makes a city. Pursuing this with special focus on one urban form, the street, the course employs field and sketching trips, film, music, the
short story, maps, poetry, census data, and more.
