Art and Identity

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 8 from the textbook. Then, select a work of art that makes a personal and historic statement, or confronts an issue or event.

You can find works of art in the textbook, a website listed on the ART101 Museum and Images Website document, Art Identifying Movements (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.), one of the assigned virtual reality videos, or visit your local museum.

Your work of art should be one that you have not already examined elsewhere in this class, with the exception of the Week 3 assignment.

Some examples can be seen at

Custers Last Stand from the Lakota perspective (Links to an external site.)
Gustave Courbet, The Stonebreakers (Links to an external site.)
