In this course students continue to develop and produce a body of self-generated studio work culminating in a public exhibition. This exhibition will be accompanied by a written statement of goals placed within an art historical context and a public lecture that addresses the project’s expressive significance and its relationship to contemporary art and art theory. Consult the Department of Art and Art History’s guidelines for the St. Mary’s Project. This course replaces ART 490. Prerequisite: one 300-level studio art course in the student’s chosen area of focus and the approval of the instructor and chair of the Art and Art History Department.
