This series of slide talks will explore the shift from Modern to Contemporary Art from approximately 1950 to the present day.

The five weekly lectures will act as a timeline to investigate Modern Art and how it transitioned to define the Contemporary. A presentation of innovations, shifts, and trends of late 20th to early 21st Century Art will give the artist and art lover a better understanding of recent art history. Significant American and international artists will be presented with a diverse approach emphasizing multicultural, queer, women, and artists of color. Each slide talk will be approximately 40 minutes followed by a discussion period for questions and comments.
