Viewing Art in Person You need to see original art in person during this current semester . It is up to you to attend events or go to the gallery to personally see the artwork. Note: Do NOT call a gallery or local institution at the last minute to find out more information about the art, artist, title, etc. While gallery personnel (or even the artists themselves) like to discuss art, it is not appropriate to call them to find out information that you should (or could) find out on your own.
