Art 31 Final Project



DUE: NO LATER THAN JULY 26

DUE NO LATER THAN JULY 26!!!!


Your mission:

Pretend you are the Curator [someone who organizes art exhibitions] of a major art museum.
Design a virtual art exhibition of art works which you believe illustrate a particular theme.
The theme can be as imaginative as you like, but THINK CAREFULLY about which images
you choose for the exhibition. Choose a minimum of 12 paintings, sculptures, photographs,
or other art forms that you feel would make a good, well-organized exhibition. NOTE, YOU
SHOULD CHOOSE WORKS FROM VARIOUS TIME PERIODS AND CULTURES. For
each work you choose, I would like you to tell me the most important characteristics of the
style or culture of each image you choose. Tell me why you believe the image to be, for
example, from the Baroque or from the Romantic Period or from the Renaissance.


POSSIBLE THEMES: Animals in Art; Images of
Birth/Death in Art; Self-Portraits; Images of
the Family in Art; Art as Propaganda; The Influence
of Classicism; Children in Art; Images of
Science and Scientists in Art; Images of Warfare;
Images of Love and Romance; The Theme
of the Hero/Heroine in Art... Get the picture? The
possiblilites are endless--These are just
suggestions--Come up with your OWN idea. Please
feel free to see me if you are having
problems coming up with your 'virtual exhibition'.

EACH WORK MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY:
Artist's Name (if known); Title of Work,
Year; Medium; and Location; Time Period or Style
(for instance, Dutch Baroque, French
Impressionism; Cubism, etc.).

THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO COMPLETE THIS
ASSIGNMENT:

1) Create a photo album of your 'Virtual' art
exhibition, accompanied by your TYPED
material. Assemble the images you feel would best fit
your theme--from library books
(xeroxed--not torn out!) or downloaded from the
internet (clear images, please). Along with
each image, include a written explanation of why you
felt the image would be good to
include in the exhibition--why it fits the theme you've
chosen. Choose at least 12 images.

FOR THOSE BRAVE SOULS:

2) CREATE A VIRTUAL PHOTO ALBUM.
Tripod.com allows individuals to create their
own webpages, including "photo album" pages. [My
website uses these pages; just click on
the example below.] After registering with
Tripod.com, you can download images into your
photo album very easily. You can obtain these images
(AT LEAST 12) from the internet (I've
included a link below which features many websites
with art images). If you have access to a
scanner, you can also scan in and save the images you
choose, which you can then import to
your Tripod.com Photo Album. When you find an
image you think would fit your theme,
right click on the image and save it. After choosing all
your images, you can import them to
the Photo Gallery which Tripod.com has set up. Along
with each image you can type in the
information about the image, as well as your
explanation of why you included this work and
how it fits the theme of your exhibition. After you have
completed your assignment, you can
email the website address to me. It's much
simpler--and painless--than it sounds!
Keep in Mind that your online "Virtual Gallery" must
also be accompanied by written
material, and NOT just a collection of images. If you
are interested in doing the assignment
'online', please let me know and I'll be happy to show
you how.
