Exploring Art through History

by Roz Hertz

amandaThe students are our pride and joy at CSULB. Now OLLI members have the opportunity to become acquainted with eight of the graduates who are currently working on an M.A. with a concentration in Art History. Some have taught before, and one in particular, Amanda Wada, has taught at OLLI twice. Many of these young and industrious people are contemplating teaching as a career when they graduate. So, who knows, maybe we will be the recipients of their “labor of love,” as they call it.
In this EXPLORING ART THROUGH HISTORY class, each artist will lecture and incorporate the works of notable artists who represent different time periods of art. Photos and other media will be presented, thus enhancing the lecture. Discussion is encouraged. Their choices exhibit so much variety and diligent planning that, even if you are not fully engrossed in art now, you probably will be after this course. The following is their schedule for eight weeks:
October 8th Tricia Romero “Goya”
October 15th Amanda Wada “Rococo and Neoclassicism”
October 22nd Alyssa Schulenderer “LGBT Activist Art in the 1980s and 90s”
October 29th Jennifer Bias “Harlem Renaissance Art”
November 5th Christina Alegria “The Life of a Painting:
Delacrois’s Women of Algiers as revisited by Picasso and Essaydi”
November 12th Justin Smith “Abstract Expressionism in LA”
November 19th Kiyomi Fukui “The Life and Work of Hokusai”
December 3rd Mary Grace Sanchez “Filipino American Contemporary”
Many OLLI members have proven their love for art by taking our art classes and by participating in our annual art exhibit. In this class you don’t have to work. Just sit back and enjoy the unforgettable works of others. Pablo Picasso once said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” See you in class.
