This Week: Art Care Package

In the write-up I give full details about this activity and also some suggestions on who you might choose to send it to. One great choice is to an Art110 Classmate! It’s not required, but it’s a really nice way to connect to your classmates. Plus, if you agree to trade Art Care Packages with someone in class, then you’ll not only be making one to send, you’ll receive one too!

Think about it! 😀

Last Week: Cuisine, Couture or Coiffure

Almost all of you chose food last week. Hiten convinced his girlfriend to braid his hair. Lisa M & Rami played with their clothes. Think about the difference between these media and more traditional media like painting and sculpture. Can a painting say more than food or fashion? Do these elements, often found in Relational Aesthetics or Social Practice art works, have an ability to connect with a wider culture than more traditional high art, or academic art forms?
