You will be expected to visit a local Museum with the intent of writing an essay about an artist’s work you see at the Museum. Your paper may include research about the artists work not shown at the Museum but must include a work you can see in person. -Note: please see handout for acceptable Museums to visit. (see: canvas site) If it’s not on the list please talk to me first about where you want to go. And yes please I would like to see some proof that you were at the museum; a ticket stub or picture would do nicely.
-The paper should be no less than 2 pages (single spaced please). Documenting pictures are encouraged but DO NOT count towards your three pages. The goals of this assignment are as follows: -To familiarize and research an artist who is new to you or who you know little about. -To analyze the method, subject, themes and style of the artists work. (see questions below for more on that) -To research the history and time period of the chosen artist -To discover your personal “take” or thoughts about the work(s) in question. This should only be one aspect of your paper. IMPORTANT NOTE: please site any sources you use in your research. Use your own voice in writing. It is plagiarism to use the words and ideas of another source with out giving credit to that source.
