Please choose a work of art from one (1) of the three following art options and write a short personal response to that artwork. When writing a personal response to a piece of art, it's helpful to examine what drew you to the work itself, whether you identify with the artwork, and how the art resonates with you as an individual. Note: Always be sure to include the name of the artist, the project or artwork title, and the year it was made, when possible, in your response. (In a museum this information can usually be found in nearby object labels or wall text.)
1. The Baltimore Museum of Art
- Visit the Baltimore Museum of Art
in person (don't forget your mask!) or via their website and select an artwork within the museum that speaks directly to you as a student, an artist, or a creative individual in Baltimore City. Do you see parts of yourself in the art you find in the museum? How so?
2. The ArtxHistory Website
- Explore the website ArtXHistory
, select an artist or an artwork that you find within their archive and write a personal response to it. What did you learn from the artwork, how did learning about the artwork impact your view of the world?
3. Thinking back on your own experience
- please tell us about a significant or memorable encounter you had with an artwork, book, or performance. Note that this need not have been a formal or ticketed arts experience - it could be listening to a choir in your congregation, reading to a sibling, or looking at pictures your grandfather took.
