Art history and theory presentations focus on the study of works of art, architecture, and visual culture, as well as the ideas and beliefs that have driven and influenced creative activity Through art history, we explore the importance and meaning of artistic production from various cultures and eras, and the socio-cultural, philosophical, and political forces that have shaped what we know today as art. Through art theory, we examine the ideas and concepts that are related to the production, interpretation, and experience of fine arts.
