In this discussion, you will first write and share a short post about your museum experience with the class.
REFLECT & RESPOND:
FIRST: Complete your virtual museum visit, as described on the previous page.
SECOND: Post a reflection about your virtual museum visit and experience. You will write 150-300 words exploring both your experience, your learning, your observations, and your critical thinking in putting together what you saw, read, and learned before and during your visit.
Please be sure to include at least one name of a museum and exhibit you attended. (Museum names are proper nouns, and it is important to spell them correctly. Exhibition titles should be italicized or in quotation marks.)
Ex: I attended the virtual exhibit “The Fabric of Africa” via Google Arts & Culture. OR
Ex: I attended the exhibit “Spirits and Headhunters” at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana.
Include at least one photo in your post. It could be a screenshot or pasted image from your museum visit — either a photo of your favorite, least favorite, or most moving artwork or textual description of the work (or the museum label).
Specifically, please consider the prompts and focus questions on the page Virtual Museum Visit, in addition to our Weekly Content Overview which is attached.
Which museum was your favorite and why? Was it the one that was most surprising or the one that had art you most wanted to see? Explore your thoughts and reactions as you visit each museum online.
Next, consider the readings you did before your visit as well as the textual information provided by the museum. What did you learn and notice?
What works moved you, what did you learn, what did you notice?
Did any of the themes from this week’s readings resonate with you during your virtual visit?
Please see the discussion rubric to see how you will be evaluated.
