#1 Discussion-Work of Art
You will take on the role of an investigative journalist by using the Internet to seek out different kinds of artworks including art that is not conventionally considered to be art. Works of art currently, or traditionally found in museums should be excluded from your examples. Choose two specific works of art (not general forms of art) that will make for a captivating news article. Apply your own critical thinking to completely describe the works and put them in context for the reader. Elaborate on the details in your own words. Consider including a headline to grab your reader's attention, and be sure to include a clearly labeled URL (Web link) to the image. Cite all sources. Answer the following:
1. What is the FORM of the work?
2. Is it a two-dimensional or three-dimensional work of art?
3. Does the work of art have SUBJECT MATTER? If so, what is literally depicted?
5. What is the CONTENT?
6. What does it mean or represent?
7. W hat is the artist's message?
8. Is symbolism used? If so, what is the meaning?
