Assignment 4: Impressions of Museum or Gallery Exhibit
Due Week 10 and worth 200 points
As a way of experiencing the Humanities beyond your classroom, computer, and textbook, you are asked to attend a cultural event and report on your experience. This assignment requires the following:
Write a three to four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) in which you:
Identify the date visited, location, name, and background of the museum or specific exhibition. (If virtual, identify the Website along with the other information.)
Describe four(4) works, noting the artist, title, subject, and the time period of each work.
Compare the style, influences, and meaning or intent of each piece, highlighting any changes (if any) from the first to last piece.
Explain your reasons for selecting the pieces in a discussion of the reasons for the artists popularity and/or impact on the art world.
Summarize the main points of four (4) works discussed in your paper in a PowerPoint presentation of at least four(4) slides. Each of the slides should have three to four (3-4) short bullet points and notes about the works in the slide notes section. Include a cover page for the PowerPoint. Add the slides with notes to your paper.
Include six (6) references that help supports your claims. (The text may be used as one (1) reference.)
Visiting a Museum
It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what is available to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you. If there is a traveling exhibition, its always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things in the museum.
Make notes as you go through the museum and accept any handouts or pamphlets that the museum provides free. While you should not quote anything from the printed material when you do your report, the handouts may help to refresh your memory later.
The quality of your experience is not measured by the amount of time you spend in the galleries or the number of works of art that you actually see. The most rewarding experiences can come from finding three (3) pieces of art or exhibits that intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums even have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece.
If you are having a difficult time deciding which pieces to write about, ask yourself these questions: (1) If the museum you are visiting suddenly caught fire, which three (3) pieces of art or exhibits would you most want to see saved from the fire? (2) Why would you choose those two (2) particular pieces?
Note: If a student is unable to attend a cultural event in person due to circumstances beyond the students control, then the instructor will recommend an alternate event/activity for the student to attend online. The virtual event/activity is usually only for students who, due to their physical location, cannot possibly attend an event/activity in person; typically, these students are stationed overseas or have no means of transportation. If you believe that you have a legitimate reason for attending a virtual activity, you must contact the instructor no later than Week 5 for your request to be considered.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
This course requires use of new Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The format is different than other Strayer University courses. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details.
Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow SWS Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
