Overview

Art has the ability to transform space and create dialogue that invokes social change throughout different moments of time and various societies. Works of art and buildings have shaped our world with marvel and intrigue. 

Have you ever wondered how Michelangelo came to produce one of the world’s most influential works on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, or why artist Emily Carr became so highly admired, or how the prehistoric indigenous petroforms in the Whiteshell Provincial Park were made, and what was their symbolic function? If so, you may find history of art a fascinating field of study.
