In this inquiry-based tour and art-making experience, students will use artwork as a primary source for investigating the phenomenon of globalization at different moments in history. Through hands-on activities and active research, they will explore how innovations in the arts have driven globalization, and will examine some of the social, economic, ecological and cultural consequences of an increasingly connected world.
