I’m working on a art practice test / quiz and need support to help me study.
Survey II Final
Exhibition Review Paper, 3 pages (750 words), 100 points
Due: April 30, by the end of the day
Format: 3-page paper (750 words): typed, 12-point font, standard margins, double-spaced.
Each year Stetson University purchases students’ artworks for its permanent collection. You are to assume the role of an art consultant for the Stetson University. You job is to attend (in person or virtually) Creating Arts Student Senior Show and write a report about the exhibition with your recommendations. Your report should include the following:
- Introduction: general description of the exhibition (general description of works on display (type of works, mediums, etc.) and your general impression about the technical skill and conceptual / aesthetical value of the exhibited works).
- Your recommendations: you should select 3 works (done by different artists), which the university should purchase. You are to offer a visual description of each work, discussing its technique, style, narrative content, and meaning (as you understand it). You can refer to the artist statements to better understand the meaning. You will explain the reasons behind your selection. In this section you should discuss what exactly makes the selected works a valuable addition to the university’s collection (For example: technical skill, uniqueness of the concept, visual attractiveness, innovative technique, narrative content, message, relevance to the values of the university, etc.). You should come up with your own 3 criteria, which will serve as a basis for your selection of artworks. Also, you should propose where on campus (specific location) these works should be displayed, explaining the advantages of this particular location.
- You should also select 2 artworks (done by different artists) that the University should not purchase. You should make your case, analyzing the artworks and explaining the reasons why purchasing them would essentially be a waste of money.
- In conclusion, you should rate the selected works (for purchase) in order of their desirability for the University, explaining how the purchase your recommend will benefit the student body and the University in general.
