1.5 Discussion: what do you know about Art?

This week, we’ve been exploring big questions such as: What is art? Who makes art and why? As we begin answering these questions, you may find that the definition of art feels subjective. You may be wondering if it’s the artist that matters, the idea, or the finished artwork. Perhaps you are also wondering why some art becomes wildly famous and incredibly well-known while other works of art deemed less important.

For this discussion, consider what you know about art and how this week’s introduction has shaped your awareness of art. First, recall a previous experience you have had with a work of art. What was your reaction like to that work of art? Did you understand the work of art’s meaning? Did you perhaps question why it was considered art, or whether it was controversial at all?

Please post an image (EMBED the image) of the work of art you are referencing from a google search. Give the name of the artist (if known) and/or the title of the artwork, and the context in which you viewed the art (in a Museum, a place, a public area, etc).

Lastly, consider any lingering thoughts you may have about meaning in art or what is considered art. Please post at least one further question about art that you hope to have answered in this course (or at least explore more).

This is a fairly open-ended question to get us thinking about the definitions of art, what we collectively have experienced, and what we would like to know more about. Discussions will be graded on whether you successfully and thoroughly addressed the issues/questions above, took your time to write a thoughtful response, checked for basic grammar and spelling. View the attached RUBRIC for more information on how you’ll be graded. I’m not going to mark you down for occasional errors, but if your post is difficult to read due to incorrect grammar/spelling you might lose points). Length is not as important as quality, but as a general guideline you’ll want to post somewhere between 200-400 words. Please write all of your discussion responses in prose (i.e., full sentences, complete paragraphs) rather than bulleted lists. Please no informal language or abbreviations (lol etc not encouraged).

Please also read and reply to at least 2 other students’ posts to receive full credit before the due date. Simply “I liked your post” is not enough — you’ll want to write at least 3 sentences responding to the ideas/questions in your fellow students’ posts. Keep replies professional, appropriate, and respectful.
