Unformatted text preview: Houston Museum of Fine Arts Scavenger Hunt __________________________ ARTS 1303 Backer NAME Be sure to review this sheet before going to the museum, so that you’ll be sure to be familiar with all of the terms on the sheet. At the least, bring your textbook with you so you can look up any unfamiliar terms. Plan to spend at least two hours working on the scavenger hunt. DUE OCTOBER 27 View the files “How to Read a Label” and “MFAH General Information” before your visit. Admission to the museum is $7 normally; with a student ID admission is only $3.50. If you show this assignment and a student ID, admission will be free. The museum is closed Mondays, and, on Thursdays, admission is free for everyone. While you’re downtown, I encourage you to visit some of the cultural institutions. If you visit the Menil Collection and/or the Contemporary Art Museum (just across the street from the MFA) and write up a 5 sentence response, I will provide five points of extra credit (each).

Bring back proof of your attendance! It is important that you attend the museum yourself. There is no substitute for seeing art in person. To that end, I require you to bring back proof of your attendance. They will give you a sticker to wear on your shirt that identifies you as a paying visitor. Bring the sticker and a receipt as proof. Get a map of the museum. It will be difficult to follow the assignment without one. The room numbers are referenced below in the questions and can be found on the map. They are also near the doorway in most rooms. If you get lost, ask a guard for directions, referring to the room number, but also the works of art you’re looking for (the guards may not know the room numbers, especially in the Caroline Wiess Law Building, where they’re not posted). I recommend a clipboard or another hard surface for writing. If you write large, you might want to bring extra paper. Please type up your responses in a digital file and turn that in, rather than 1 your hand-written notes. Use this word document, and delete all of the lines for the answers. Please leave the question text for the questions you did not answer. Type your answers below the question text in a different font. You can use bold, highlighting, underlining, italics, font color, or any other means – just distinguish between the question and answer text in a clear...
