3DGL250 East Meets West: An Intersection of the Art: Istanbul, Turkey 3 cr.


This trip will be a dynamic exploration of Turkey and the role that it has played shaping the cultural, artistic and historical climate in Eastern Europe. As a bridge between Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a unique city in many ways. The course’s goal is to explore the convergence of the contemporary art scene in Istanbul while reveling in the rich history and culture that Turkey has to offer. During our journey, we will spend our time both in Istanbul, and at an Artist Retreat located in the countryside 45 minutes north of the city, near the Black Sea. The school, “Cam Ocai”. (in English referred to as The Glass Furnace) is Turkey’s first glass school and has state of the art studios for learning, applying, and experimenting with various hot and cold glass techniques.
