Graduate Level - This class meets in conjunction with THAR285. This graduate level class will also include additional assignments above the 285 requirements as discussed with the instructor for that semester. A study of the creation and presentation of art (e.g., theater, film, sculpture), the cultural context of creativity and the management of individual and institutional performance and exhibition. A combination of lectures by instructors and practitioners, case studies and consulting projects with local institutions will illustrate the relationship between creativity and presentation. Students will be required to write papers, proposals, and complete a term project.
