Art, Communication and Contact Zones: Open Online Course (U Pittsburgh)

Art, Communication, and Contact Zones is a free, open online course offered via the University of Pittsburgh now accepting enrollments via Blackboard’s Open Education platform.

Course description:
In a society that steers us to reinforce our existing preferences, it can be illuminating to study public art designed to bring diverse audiences together in “contact zones,” where different worlds and discordant views mix. Join us to explore close readings of monuments, installations, and other artworks that arise from, create, and animate such ‘contact zones.’ This open online course runs parallel with a brick-and-mortar seminar by the same name at the University of Pittsburgh, giving you a chance to connect with Pitt faculty members and students. Workload: view one brief video lesson every other week for five weeks and participate through voluntary written discussions.
