For this mini-research project, you will visit the Art Institute, online (https://www.artic.edu/collection) You will choose four objects, each from a different culture that we have studied this semester. (Africa, India, Islam, China, Japan)
For each artwork, you will:
A) Use the website or wall text to identify the work with the title and artist, the region, the time period created, and materials used.
B) Describe the work in your own words and use your understanding of the textbook to explain how the object represents the time and culture to which it belongs. (Do not quote or even paraphrase the Art Institute’s text here; I will deduct points. I want your words and ideas here.)
C) Find one academic source. (https://www.ccc.edu/departments/Pages/Library-System.aspx) Use the City Colleges’ library database to search for these kinds of sources. (Remember that you can select tabs like “Peer-Reviewed Journals,” which will provide only academic sources, and “Full Text Online,” which will enable you to read the article.) Give the full citation for the source you found (you can use either MLA or Chicago style). Underneath the citation explain what insight the source could give into the object. Your source probably will not be about the artwork, and, in fact, your source does not need to reference the object at all. Maybe the source is about the culture and/or time period; maybe your object is a quilt, and your source traces the history of quilts, and maybe you can argue for some other kind of connection between the source and artwork. This section depends on you to argue for the relevance of the source.
You don’t really need an introduction, conclusion, or transitions between your objects. You should still strive to develop your ideas in full through college-level writing.
You should follow the instructions closely and answer all of the questions. I cannot imagine that a good paper can meet all of the requirements in less than four pages (one page per work).
