text research project
Write a 5-image with labels, 2000-2500 words of text research project highlighting diversity in the student’s art ‘community’ –specifically, a collection or exhibition of non-Western art in the Harn Museum located in Gainesville, Florida. These can include works from one collection (Asia, Africa, etc.) or works from multiple non-Western collections or exhibitions (current, future or past) in the museum. If you chose works from multiple collections, be sure to tie them together thematically in relation to diversity in Gainesville.
Please note that you are NOT obligated to visit the the Harn Museum in order to complete this project as you can simply consider Gainesville your ‘virtual’ community. Everything you will need is available online at http://www.harn.ufl.edu/collections .
– Make a connection between the Harn museum’s global collections and how it affects diversity in the community.
– Use the art object information to support your view that the Harn Museum does OR does not reflect and/or serve as an effective ambassador for cultural diversity in Gainesville.
– In other words, learning about global cultural (via global art collections) should assist the community, students and others in having greater awareness of diversity/cultural issues.
The paper should include a bibliography or references page. The paper should include a thesis statement or key theme/argument. The chosen images should support the argument and serve as the focus of the narrative.
