  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Touring a modern art museum or art gallery can be a daunting experience. Starting with the French Impressionists, this course will explore the past century of rapid cultural change driven by technology, war and the evolving relationships of men and women with each other and with society.

The visual arts are a powerful avenue toward understanding our recent history. Observation, discussion and debate will be encouraged.
