ART MUSEUM VISIT: REFLECTION ASSIGNMENT
We examined several works of visual art that resonate with the course themes. This assignment will give you an opportunity to reflect further on how the visual arts can comment on some of the issues we have confronted in the literary works we’ve read this term. You may use any piece from the exhibit that you think is relevant.
1. Select a work of art to analyze. It can either be a piece we viewed today or another work that is on display in the museum’s collection (see the list below for some options).
2. Identify and describe three features of the work that you think are important. These features can be visual content, but might also be the work’s format, medium, structure, etc.
3. In fewer than 250 words, explain how the work addresses one or more course themes.
4. Both visual art and literature can offer a critical perspective on science and technology. Do you react differently to these themes as depicted visually than you do when encountering them through the written word? Explain. (fewer than 250 words)
