AHT 3190 - Art and World Mythology


Myths are traditional stories that have played vital roles in many cultures through the ages. They describe the origins of humanity, they tell stories of great heroes and gods, they explain how the world works, they teach lessons, and they reveal truths about our nature. An integral part of daily life, mythological narratives were expressed in civic and private monuments. This course will explore how myths are represented in the visual arts of ancient Greece and Rome, Mesopotamia, Native North America, Asia, and Europe. By tracing these mythic traditions from antiquity to contemporary culture, students will discover how and why myths and their meanings change over time. Students will have the opportunity to create their own mythology-inspired works in the media of their choice, gaining a deeper understanding of the significance of these tales in modern society.
