Painted Manuscript class explores Mesoamerican hieroglyphics

Students in the Special Topics: Art of the Painted Manuscript class, taught by Dr. Nancy Kelker in the Fall 2018 semester, explored Mesoamerican manuscripts and carved hieroglyphic texts created by the Maya, Mixtec, and Mexica peoples and compared them to the tradition of Islamic painted manuscripts in West Asia and India. These hieroglyphic and pictographic texts frequently recount dynastic histories, recording the births, accessions, marriages, and deaths in the ruling families of ancient Mexico. The class featured an experiential component in which students created their own family stories using traditional materials, such as amate bark paper, deer hide, and natural pigment paints, methods, and the idioms of the ancient Maya, Mixtec, or Islamic miniature painters.

Artists' roles in WWI legacy illustrated in exhibit

The realization that few students today have much awareness of World War I, the 1914-1918 conflict that changed the world, prompted faculty member Kyle Stoneman to create an exhibit called "Printmaker at War: The Art of Sir John Muirhead-Bone." Student Jane Kim worked with Stoneman, whose research deals with the social and artistic ramifications of the First World War. He says, "The show's theme was the aesthetics of World War I propaganda and the role artists and writers played in creating that aesthetic." Stoneman initially purchased the featured lithographs for teaching purposes, explaining, "I wanted students to have practical experience in curating museum quality works by major artists." He hopes that viewers gained a better understanding of the leading role artists played during the war as well as the ways artists shaped the legacy of that war. Working closely with faculty members is an example of hands-on learning at 澳门六合彩规律论坛.
