Pathways: The Influence of Ancient Art on Contemporary Art Information Session


Monday, October 09, 2017, 3:30PM - 4:30PM


Pathways: The Influence of Ancient Art on Contemporary Art enables students to explore Siena, a Tuscan hill town that flourished during the Middle Ages and still retains its walls and traditions in a mixture of old and new. Siena has a fascinating history and contains important examples of religious art and architecture. The traditions of the Palio (horse race) are still alive in each contrada or neighborhood so that an elaborate culture of parade, performance, costume and local identity is maintained. Siena also has the growing presence in contemporary art thanks to the Siena Art Institute (SART), the host institution. Students will have access to museums, churches, collections, archives, and other historic and cultural resources of Siena through partnering with the staff, faculty and programming of the Art Institute. Staff from SART will serve as guides for local visits as well as during excursions in the Tuscan countryside and Florence. Students will gather research material during their explorations of the city and its surroundings. They will have the opportunity to work with these materials in the studios of SART as well as participate in the life of the city through a series of walking, mapping, creating and collecting projects with related readings and lectures on walking, art and ritual.
