Description:Reflecting on the history of art appreciation and viewing its current context within a community college, as a general education course that largely perpetuates cultural miseducation (Martin 2011) through preservation of the Western canon, this dissertation is a theoretical inquiry into the re-visioning of the art appreciation curriculum. In community college (and perhaps elsewhere), conceptually grounding art appreciation curriculum in “aesthetic disgust,1 ”(Korsmeyer 2011) or “difficult beauty,2 ” (Bosanquet 1923) with pedagogical creativity can yield deeper, livelier critical student engagement and (transformative) learning than a traditional conceptual grounding in beauty.
