Click the linked activity title to access Assignment 3: Cultural Activity Report.
Visit a museum or art gallery before the end of Week 9 (Option
1, details below). If you are unable to get to a museum or gallery
within your area, then a create your own museum assignment can be
completed in its place (see Option 2, details below). The museum or
gallery you visit (Option 1) or create (Option 2) should contain art or
artifacts from the time period you are studying in this course. Select
from one of the following options:
Option 1: Visiting a Museum
Write a 2–3 page report, 500–750 words that describes your experience:
Visit a museum or gallery near you. Select a minimum of 5–10
works of art by 5–10 different artists, from different time periods
discussed in the text (Ancient Times to 1600s).
Clearly identify the location, date attended, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the museum or gallery.
Provide a description and summary of at least 5–10 works of art by 5–10 different artists.
Provide a photograph of each selected piece if the venue allows it. (Some museums strictly prohibit photography.)
Explain your initial reaction to the artwork you selected and explain why you chose each piece.
Describe the role of museum founder and curator.
Use the class text as a reference (additional sources are
fine, but not necessary unless required by your content). Your report
should include connections you make between things observed in your
activity and things learned in the course and text.
Here are some tips about visiting a museum in person:
It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned
traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what
museums are accessible to you and have exhibits that intrigue you.
Find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the
museum you select. When you go, start with the exhibits that interest
you or, if there is a traveling exhibition, look at that first. Then
later, if you have time, you can check out other exhibits.
Keep in mind that 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 see.
Your goal is to find 5–10 works of art by 5–10 different
artists who intrigue you, and then consider those works in leisurely
contemplation. Most museums have benches where you can sit and study a
particular piece. Take notes while you are there.
Option 2: Create and Curate Your Own Art Museum
This assignment is an alternative option for visiting a museum
or art gallery. For this paper, you will select and curate a minimum of
5–10 works of art by 5–10 different artists to include in your own art
museum. Use your textbook and online sources to help you find these
works of art. A good resource for this assignment is the
Google Arts and Culture
website from the Google Cultural Institute. Here you can
immerse
yourself in cultural experiences across art, history and wonders of the
world—from more than a thousand museums across 70 countries.
Assignment Instructions
Write a 2–3 page report, 500–750 words that describes your experience.
Select a minimum of 5–10 works of art by 5–10 different artists, from different time periods discussed in the text (Ancient Times to 1600s).
Clearly identify the location of the museum and your initial
reaction when exploring the artwork in the online museum or gallery.
Provide a description and summary of at least 5–10 works of art by 5–10 different artists.
Include a screenshot of each piece.
Explain your initial reaction to the artwork you selected and explain why you chose each piece.
Describe the role of museum founder and curator.
Use the class text as a reference (additional sources are
fine, but not necessary unless required by your content). Your report
should include connections you make between things observed in your
activity and things learned in the course and text.
Note: The same rubric will be used for both
Options 1 and 2. In one section of the rubric, you are graded on your
discussion of the role of the founder and curator of the museum. For
Option 1, you will likely find this information on the museum web page
or museum materials. For Option 2, the roles of museum founder and
curator are held by you.
