Link to Museum Assignment

3.  Investigate:

Your next task will be to do some brief research.  A library session scheduled for Wed., Sept. 21 during our regular class period will help you start your investigation.  On this day, you must show me your descriptions of the two objects selected!

Next, you will be required to consult two (2) scholarly sources to find out more about each of these two objects (four sources total). A reference librarian and I will assist you in finding these sources at this session.  These sources may help you find out more about the artist who made the work (if attributed to a known artist), the subject of the artwork, the medium used to make it and/or its particular style.  Do not use your textbook or general encyclopedias.  One (but, only one) of your four sources may be a website (this means a source that exists only as a website), though it must be a legitimate one (the rule of thumb is that it must come from a museum or academic institution and have an author; look for .org or .edu sites.) Your research should help illuminate the work of art for you, bringing new insights to the first-hand observations you made while at the museum.
