This class is taught by Michael Aschenbrenner and meets in B231/232 at the Brookfield campus.
Learn how art reflects, responds to, is shaped by (and even shapes) belief. We will look at magnificent works of art and architecture with our eyes and be challenged with connecting them to our hearts and minds.
