Focus of the Final Project
Your local art museum has asked you to design a gallery dedicated to works of art from one of the following movements:
Using your outline from Week 3 as reference, select only one movement for the design of your gallery.
You may use Word or PowerPoint to design your gallery. The Ashford Writing Center’s How to Make a PowerPoint Presentation (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. can help you PowerPoint to put together an attractive and successful presentation.
You will design your gallery as if you were guiding a visitor to each work of art. You may draw from images that you find in Gardner’s Art Through the Ages: The Western Perspective or from a website listed on the ART101 Museum and Images Website document located in your classroom that incorporate the characteristics significant of your chosen movement and time period. You may also choose to reflect back on your weekly art journal entries for any works of art relevant to this movement.
In your gallery, include the following:
- A brief introduction to your gallery, which includes a description of the movement and the time period to which your gallery is dedicated.
- Six images of works of art that incorporate the characteristics significant to movement and time period. Along with each image of a work of art, include the citation for the work of art. A summary of how the media (materials), methods, and subject are significant to that time period and region, using appropriate art terminology.
- A summary of how iconographic, historical, political, philosophical, religious, and social factors of the movement are reflected in the work of art.
- Make use of at least three scholarly sources from ProQuest and JSTOR in addition to the course text.
The ProQuest and JSTOR databases in the Ashford Online Library are helpful sources of information, as is the ART101 Museum and Images Websitedocument located in your classroom. To locate ProQuest and JSTOR, visit the Ashford University Library through the tab on the left navigation toolbar in your online course. From the library home page select Find Articles and More and then select Databases A – Z. From the list of letters, you will choose the “J” link for JSTOR or “P” for ProQuest. Then, scroll down to JSTOR or ProQuest.
