Summary

EXPLORING ART offers the perfect blend between Western and non-Western art tradition. Its content-rich , thematic approach allows professors to select significant and important themes without sacrificing imporant time periods or marginalizing non-Western art due to time constraints. EXPLORING ART combines both traditions and presents them in a relevant and understandable way. Truly global, EXPLORING ART provides students with a richer and more culturally relevant understanding of art than any other comparable art appreciation text.
