According to Michael Kampen O’Riley, “Just as a spice has a tangible form and leaves an aftertaste, so art has form and leaves the viewer with an aftertaste, and experience, rasa, that gives delight and bliss, and leads one to brahman.” (see definitions of terms below)
Do you think there is a connection between art and religious/spiritual experience?
Have you ever had an experience of rasa because of an artwork? (may include visual art, film, music, poetry, dance, etc.)
Please include an image or a link to your artwork, if possible.
RASA: “A central concept in Hindu thought, referring to the emotions of joy and pleasure that the beholder may experience in response to the visual arts, music, poetry, and drama. Through rasa, the beholder becomes one with the creator and the art.”
BRAHMAN: “In Indian thought, an all-inclusive, universal, and eternal spiritual reality (…)”

Begin your virtual visit by reading carefully about the social and historical conditions under which Carrie Stettheimer constructed this Dollhouse. Spend a significant time looking carefully through each room. Examine the architecture, furniture, wallpaper, lighting, artwork, domestic ornamentation and choose a few rooms to focus your attention on.
If you have any questions please let me know.
An annotated bibliography is a list of cited sources, where each citation is also followed by a brief annotation, or discussion of the source. An annotated bibliography is useful for documenting your research, making note of why a source will be useful, and summarizing main points to refer back to. Following each citation, write a brief summary of the information in the source that you think will be useful to your paper. Each annotation is at least one (1) paragraph, but I encourage you to use this assignment to browse/read through the sources you have so you know if they will be useful or not. If not, you give yourself more time to get new ones, rather than waiting until the end of the semester when you are in the process of writing. Your final research paper requires 7-10 scholarly resources; this annotated bibliography will need to have at least 6 sources. MLA format.
the first folder is the guidelines for the first paper we had to write and the one I’m needing you to write is basically a second kind of longer version with more academic sources (6) that have to be researched and written about. the screenshot is an explanation of the second essay. The first essay I wrote for the first assignment was trash and my prof asked me to rewrite a thesis anyway so anything really can go for this but I wrote about Tracey Emin’s “My Bed” artwork installation.
Email me if there’s any questions. Thankyou so much
Please read the article “Athletic Aesthetics: Art, Craft and Bolton Brown” https://artinprint.org/article/athletic-aesthetics-art-craft-and-bolton-brown/
A surprising revelation to me was Brown’s influence in lithography early in the 20th century. As an artist and printmaker, he lived by many of the printmaking tenets we ascribe to printmaking and printmakers in the last century; immersion and obsession with technique, the marriage of creativity with the technical, and a desire to separate the commercial from fine art.
In a thoughtful written statement, answer the following questions. If you use quotes from the text, please do cite by using quotation marks and referring to John Murphy as the author of the quote.
***Also, please write in a first-person voice, if that is better to explain your ideas.
1. How had Ruskin’s Arts and Crafts Movement inspired Bolton Brown? What ideologies of the Arts & Crafts movement did Brown adopt in his lithography practice?
2. Thinking about creating your own lithograph, do you think the idea of “athletics” and “manual labour” is essential to the lithography process? Why? Use your own experience and ideas from the article to explain your position.
3. Discuss Brown’s opinion of the commercial history of lithography and how it motivated him, in his own practice. What is your opinion of the commercial history of lithography, in comparison to Brown’s ideas. Are they similar, or different, and why?
4. How did nature, the reality of the lithograph stone, as well as Brown’s own personal history influence his lithography practice? Can we find meaning and importance in Brown’s lithography philosophy today? Or do you feel otherwise? Explain
Write an essay that included three of these questions and with your first-person viewpoint.
Develop your project proposal, informed by readings, class discussions and the feedback you received online and in person during synchronous class sessions, that engages with a central question or concept related to a specific social justice issue. The final project may be a visual essay piece (that may include text and image). Keep the scope simple and accessible and be realistic as to what can be accomplished in one term. Consider in a pragmatic sense how this work will mobilize change on a social justice issue. Time based work should be under three minutes. Working in groups is encouraged.When developing this project please consider key themes around engagement and mobilization. Submit a written statement (500-1000 words) answering the following questions:Describe what you intend to make and the social justice issue you are responding toDescribe the audience you are speaking toDescribe the research you have used to develop this project, this could be readings, other artworks, archives, conversations with other people, your personal archives or external media sources.What are your primary questions, concerns and challenges?Situate the project along a continuum of cultural expression. How does this work continue, adapt or introduce new artistic approaches towards this particular social justice issue?In what ways does the work interrupt, interrogate or reframe a social issue for audience members?Locate yourself and the project within the issue. You do not have to be personally invested with this issue but an analysis of your own stakes with the issue will deepen the criticality of your work.Directly explain how this project is informed by ONE OR MORE ideas, artists, artworks or readings that are presented in this course.
Identify architectural landmarks in terms of name, date, location, style, architect, and patron
Compare and contrast architectural landmarks in terms of form, massing, style, materials, architectural context, and social context, providing supporting arguments
Explain the significance of architectural landmarks in the history of architecture.
Write a 750 – 800-word interpretive essay that compares and contrasts the pair of images you selected and provides interpretation as follows:
Begin by identifying each image with the following information in block form:
Patron (if relevant).
Begin your comparison with your best estimation of the “Big Idea,” or thematic connection between the two sites being compared. An example might be “These two images represent two distinct approaches to the modern house design.” Other examples are included in the Course Supplements section of the course Blackboard site.
Make observations about the similarities and differences in each image in terms of:
As you address the requested aspects of form, massing, style, materials, architectural context, and social context, remember that these are umbrella terms and could and should include issues or topics such as plan, technology, structure, use, or any other relevant and engaging topics that you deem significant.
Ultimately, the most important aspect of your answer gets at the most important aspect of the two sites, and you should make clear why the images in the two slides are significant in the history of architecture.
Only make a reference if you are directly quoting or heavily paraphrasing the material that is given or Bergdoll, B. 2000. European Architecture 1750 – 1890. Oxford University Press. ISBN-13: 978-0192842220.
The paper should talk about What is the problem (the perceived need or injustice or the hoped for benefit) at the heart of this issue?
Who supports it, and why; who is against it, and why?
How are the arguments for and against being articulated visually? Please note that visual communication also includes the text that is being used. In a print advertisement, for instance, the interaction of image and text is often fundamentally important to the message being communicated.
This assignment uses the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Medieval Art Collection as the source for images to create a virtual exhibition: Medieval Art collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Most museums provide brief labels that accompany works of art. Sometimes labels include factual information about the work’s art historical significance (i.e.: Van Gogh completed this image soon after moving to Paris where he first saw paintings by the Impressionists). Others direct viewers to make connections between form and meaning (i.e: Van Gogh’s use of thickly textured paint, a technique called impasto, contributes to its expressive impact.) Still others might offer information about iconography (i.e.: Van Gogh may have included the crows in his painting as a symbol of death.)
Choose 4 objects from the Medieval Art collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art and write museum labels for a general audience (a museum visitor who has little or no previous knowledge about art). You will need to identify the object by indicating the artist, title, date of production, and media (does not count toward word count.) Then write a paragraph or 2 between 100 and 150 words about the object (this is your caption [museum wall label/text]).
You should rely on your own observations and any information you have learned from the textbook or in the course modules. Write clearly and succinctly.
Some things to consider:
• What is the goal of your label?
• Think about what information you found most useful in reading about the object.
• What do you think are the most important things for the viewer to know about this object?
What information will best help the viewer understand the work’s historical context or artistic significance?
Post the first half of the written part of your final project for peer review during our class and for my comments.
The first half of your project should consist of four to five pages of written material on your project’s topic, plus a list of 3-5 visuals and 3-4 new bibliographic sources.
Remember, visuals can include photos, any relevant memorabilia (for example, diplomas, marriage certificates, etc.), historical documents, relevant images or video from the Internet, images of newspaper articles, or illustrations.
We can cite the development of oil painting by Chen Danqing and Liu Xiaodong. You’d better put some pictures
