About the Class

Space as Place is designed to offer structured exploration and "reading across places" in Greene County and beyond. We will discuss and understand the significance of transformative texts and visual arts. Space as Place provides a moving laboratory class during which you will investigate architecture, culture, environment, history, government, and all the various components that collide to shape a place out of a space. We will analyze texts, essays, paintings, photographs, journals and more. We will read, observe, write, draw, and exercise our creative muscles.  You will be asked to think critically across many disciplines to ponder the big question: "How does a community of people turn the space where they live into a place of significance?"
