Hello everyone and welcome to Week 15 of ART F262X.

Please do the following before 10pm, SUNDAY, April 26.


1. Go through the material in the Realism/Impressionism and the two 20th century wings (Art Before World War I and Art Between the Wars). You do not have to read or watch absolutely everything but make sure you have a good sense of the discussions surrounding each of the works.

2. Respond to the following forums on Slack:

  1. The invention of photography forced artists to reconsider their approach to making art. How does the art from this wing respond to the development of this new technology?
  2. The term “avant-garde’ means art that is innovative – introducing or exploring new forms or subject matter.   Choose a work from this week’s museum wings, and discuss in detail how the work exemplifies the idea of the “avant-garde.’

DUE by 10PM, May 3.

Submit the Grant Proposal via email to zjones@alaska.edu and aszhang@alaska.edu
