Project #75474 - American Art Project

I have added the instructions for the project.

 

American Art Project Instructions

It is important to remember, represent, and honor a collective past, but it is equally important to understand a deeper significance to visual records. In this assignment, you will examine works of art available through the website of the Architect of the Capitol. The purpose of this assignment is to emphasize how art can be used to portray historical events and convey a message when viewed in the context of the age in which it was created.

 

This assignment consists of 2 parts. In Part 1, you will view the historical paintings that surround the interior space of the Capitol Rotunda and read a short description and history of the artwork. In Part 2, you will view sculptures of some famous Americans who have been enshrined by their state in Statuary Hall. Read through all of the instructions for both parts before you begin. You will submit both completed parts to Blackboard in a single Microsoft Word or PowerPoint (if you do a PowerPoint, it must be submitted as a pdf) document.

 

 Part 1

 

 

 

http://aoc.gov/paintings-0

 

 

 

Click the above link to open the page for the Capitol’s Historic Rotunda Paintings. Click on the individual images for each of the 8 paintings to see them in more detail, view basic information on the piece, and read the short article provided. Once you have viewed all 8 of the images and read each description, you will choose 4 to create your presentation that answers a series of questions for each image. You must include the image, its title, and the artist as a header to each section, followed by 1 paragraph of 200–300 words for each image that addresses the following:

 

Presentation Questions Part I

 

 

 

  1. What is the artist trying to portray with the image? What feelings is he trying to evoke?
  2. When was the image commissioned and hung? What events were occurring in America that could have shaped the composition of the painting? Is there a message in the image shaped by those events?
  3. Is the artist successful in communicating his message in the work? Is there a clear connection between the artwork’s content and its context?

 

Be sure to write your paragraph in your own words and that you proofread your work to eliminate spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors. Be sure to review the Writing Tips document to avoid common errors in academic work. After you have written your paragraphs for each of your 4 choices, proceed to Part 2.

 

 

 

Part 2

 

 

 

http://aoc.gov/capitol-hill/national-statuary-hall-collection/about-national-statuary-hall-collection

 

 

 

Click the above link to open the page for the National Statuary Hall Collection. Once you have read the short overview and description of the collection, click the link to find the 2 statues that represent your state. Copy the image for each into your presentation. After each image, include the individual’s name and the state he/she represents. Then, in a 200–250-word paragraph, give a short summary of the individual’s historical significance and an evaluation of whether this individual is a good choice to represent your state.

 

 

 

Be sure to write your paragraph in your own words and that you proofread your work to eliminate spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors. Be sure to review the Writing Tips document to avoid common errors in academic work. These paragraphs will be submitted in the same document as Part 1.
