The best aspects of this course were the exhibition aspects, the professor’s obvious enthusiasm, and the course material. Students were granted the opportunity to curate an exhibition together and watch their work come together in a tangible object that could be seen by the entire university. Many students also enjoyed the depth of reading analysis in relation to the artists they focused on. But sometimes the readings were difficult to understand and very long. Students suggested that a much smaller class size, a shorter lecture time with more class periods per week, and more structure would improve the quality of the course. This course splits its time between Art History and the curation of journals, so prospective students should be aware of that.
