Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 

Sachsheadshot

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.

Art History 410

ARTH 410: After Modern Art: 1945 to the Present                    back to courses index
Joe Lucchesi

This course explores art from abstract expressionism to the present, with particular focus on issues such as the modernist artist-hero; the emergence of alternative or non-traditional media; the influence of the women's movement and the gay/lesbian liberation movement on contemporary art; globalization; and postmodern theory and practice. The course is organized as a series of thematically-based explorations of dominant ideas and concerns of contemporary artists of the past half-century. Slide presentations, lecture, and discussion.
