Language of Color: Beauty, Power, Meaning
Academic Noncredit

Course examines global and regional use of color as a visual language and as a means of trans-cultural/transnational communication. Color is explored as a cultural indicator of beauty, status, and group identity in a comparative study among geographically and culturally diverse locations. Course material takes a discipline-correlated approach where twentieth and twenty-first century visual artworks are used to present examples of color in a cultural context and to begin a dialog of contemporary issues and philosophies to include aesthetics, life style, religion, race, gender, global economics and politics. Collapse of cultural identity is addressed through a review of color as a function of global marketing strategies and Internet communications.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class.
