In this outreach course we'll work with the Huron Valley Humane Society investigating the issues surrounding animal human relationships as well as the various ways artists and designers have represented these relationships. We'll watch animal assisted therapy and talk to local organizations involved with rescue, feral, and wild animal management. What is the difference between animal rights and animal welfare? What is the new work of dogs? How do these issues relate to broader environmental concerns? This is a multi-media course. The only requirement is compassion for companion animals.
