ART 220 is a co-requisite course to ART 130 and ARC 280 enables students to identify and research major trends in visual arts and their cultural and historical context through first-hand experience. Students develop a deeper understanding of the contemporary art world through increased engagement and familiarity with various New York and New Jersey art institutions. Students visit museums, galleries, art fairs, artist and design studios, auction houses, conservation studios and attend artist lectures to experience and better understand contemporary art and the structure of the contemporary art world.
