Civilization Course Gallery ProjectTask Each student will curate an individual art gallery on the Google Art Project site. Gallery curation, as in a museum, involves the careful selection and arrangement of the works and research on the artists, their time periods, their styles, and the history of the area in order to inform the gallery visitors of the value of the art and its role in the culture of the country or region. To accompany the gallery, students will conduct research and write a three and a half to four-page essay on the artists and works they have chosen, the theme that the works represent, and the connection of the works to history and culture.
Civilization Course Gallery ProjectWorks of Art Students will select four or five works of art, each created by a different artist from the chosen country or region and spanning a large period of time. All of the works must be clearly related to the theme the student has identified, and the theme should enable the student to discuss the history and culture of the country or region as it has changed over time as part of the essay. As a starting point, she recommends that students view a number of works of art from their country or region to look for similarities. Students could search for a country, a particular artist, or view works from museums from the country.
