Description

HUMN 303N Week 1 Discussion 2: What Is a Work of Art?

Required Resources for HUMN 303N Week 1 Discussion 2
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 1
  • Lesson
  • Minimum of 1 scholarly source (in addition to the textbook)

Initial Post Instructions

If art lacks a clear definition, what criteria are used to determine what a work of art is? Please look at several works on any museum website to discuss what constitutes “art.” Some major museums include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, or National Gallery of Art, or consider finding a local museum. The permanent collection is normally under the Collections link, but feel free to explore the entire website for your selection.

For the initial post, address the following:

  • What approaches should we take in responding to a work of art?
  • Select an example of art that fits your definition of art and provide an example of non-art (either from the site or in the world around you).
  • Determine how line, color, texture, and/or composition are part of your definition.

Writing Requirements

  • Minimum of 2 posts (1 initial & 1 follow-up)
  • Minimum of 2 sources cited (assigned readings/online lessons and an outside source)
  • APA format for in-text citations and list of references
