Art Beyond the Art Class
Even from its very origins, art and art objects have played a vital role in the lives of humans. They have been used as means of recording history, understanding the world around us, recording observations, creating invention, communicating ideas, exploring identities, and expressing who we are as individuals and societies. Art can thus be used to understand and explore all these things for past societies and in the present day. Dunn Library has entire sections of art books from all over the world. This display is meant to showcase some of these different art books and begin to explore how art can go beyond the art class and be used to understand many aspects of the entire world around us.
