Art Appreciation Spring 2017
The purpose of this subject guide is to provide students conducting research in Art Appreciation (Art 10) with available resources from the LBCC Library, online databases, and via the Web.
The students are required to go to a local museum, choose a work of art to examine, and write a basic research paper on that work.
This Art Appreciation course is designed to develop a basic understanding of historical and contemporary art forms from around the world. It is an introduction to art history and covers art forms of various art media i.e. paintings, sculpture, prints, etc. Some examples of art are: the Ancient Greek statue known as the Getty Kouros dated 6th c. BCE (or possibly a modern forgery) which is on display at the Getty Villa, or works displayed at the Broad Museum by modern artists e.g., Barbara Kruger, Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, or Jean-Michel Basquiat.
