Wednesdays, March 22 - April 5, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

This class examines an ancient pagan past that meets with the expanding influence of Islam to propel Christian societies of Renaissance Europe towards new artistic heights. From the Americas to Asia and Africa, we look at early global exchange connecting creative expression with innovation and desperation. Images of our present emerge as the pioneering technologies of warfare and capitalism meet at the confluence of a public health crisis, setting in motion human ingenuity that continues to influence the cutting-edge technology of our world today, from NFTs and cryptocurrency to top-secret microbes.
