Unit 4 Project: Curate! USF College of the Arts 1 Curate!: Create a Virtual Art Exhibition DUE: Friday, December 4 10 points / 10% of final grade Post your project to your Group Discussion Board in CANVAS “A curator builds and cares for a museum’s collection. They also conduct research, develop exhibitions, recommend purchases, write catalogue essays, and work with the rest of the museum staff to engage the public. Try on the role of curator by creating an exhibition in the Google Art Project.” . Learning objectives Take the historical, thematic, and design skills learned throughout the semester and employ them to create your own art exhibition. Learn more about the role of a curator and the multitude of decisions they have to make when putting together an exhibition. Effectively explain curatorial choices through both theme and context. Gain access to museums around the world through the utilization of Google Art Project and elucidate the positives and negatives of digital art collections versus brick and mortar institutions. What to Do 1. EXPLORE AND FAMILIARIZE For this assignment you will become a virtual curator of an art exhibition using the Google Art Project, a part of the Google Cultural Institute , a project in which hundreds of museums, cultural institutions, and archives have partnered with Google to host the world’s cultural treasures online. The site is available here: or here: . Go to the website and familiarize yourself with its capabilities. 2. CREATE AN ENGAGING THEME After spending time exploring the available artworks and museums, you are required to choose 7-12 artworks for your virtual exhibition. There are a variety of ways you could approach creating your exhibition. You can approach it by style, subject matter, relation to historical events, artists’ use of material and form. It can be a simple approach (i.e. Springtime), or something more complex (The Cycle of Life or Good and Evil). Additionally, you can refer to the thematic chapters in Part 4 of your textbook if you need further ideas. How are the works connected? Do not simply choose artworks at random. Rather, determine how the works you choose have similarities or work together visually or thematically. Think about the order in which you select works for display.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
