Discussion Art

Consider all of the ways that art and identity can function together that you have read about in this module.  Then, select a work of art that is connected to your identity.  Either take a picture of it (if it is in your collection or community) or find it online. Post your selection and response by Wednesday at midnight, CST.

In your initial post, provide the class with a description and analysis of how the work of art you selected is related to your identity.  Make sure you:

  • Upload the photo that you took of the work of art that is connected to any part of your identity.
  • Describe the work of art in detail:  What does it look like?  What is the medium?  Where is it located?
  • Describe and discuss its relationship to your identity:  How does the work of art relate to your national identity, cultural heritage, ethnic identity, sex or gender identity, class identity, or a group you are affiliated with?
  • Ask a question:  Pose a question that you would like your classmates to consider in their response to your post.
