Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 


Sarah received her BA in Studio Art from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2006. In 2008, she received her Masters of Art in Digital Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and in 2009 she received her Masters of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging, also from Maryland Institute College of Art. Through her fine art work, Sarah explores the dichotomy between human and digital memory, how the two influence one another, and how they are affected by natural and technological elements of decay. She hopes to create a dialogue about the relationships between personal memory, society’s collective memory, and collective cultural identity.

ARTH 382: Sexuality and Modernity                    back to courses index
Joe Lucchesi

This course considers 20th century art through changing conceptions of sexual identity. We will study the visual arts as a primary means through which gender and sexuality were elaborated, negotiated, and enforced in the last 100 years, from the turn of the century emergence of the "gay and lesbian individual" to ongoing shifts in conceptions of sex and gender roles. The course will examine style, content, and production contexts in diverse media including painting, sculpture, photography, and performance. . Slide presentations, lecture, and discussion.
