dentify an item you are exposed to   or use daily, other than a coin that might someday be perceived as art.   Explain why this might someday appear in a museum. 

Exploring the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art

 

Refer to the assigned reading from the textbook and required videos as   examples of how to interpret works of art.
Explore The Metropolitan Museum   of Art – Galleries. As you explore, reflect on the   following and share your answers within your discussion post:

  1. We often envision a painting        when we think of art though there are many different forms and        categories of art. Based on your reading of “Introduction: What Is Art        History?” from your textbook, identify the various categories of art on        exhibit at this museum.
  2. Share an example of one work        of art, including the category of the art work, that you found        particularly interesting and share your initial interpretation and        reaction to it. Include the URL to the work of art in your post as well        as the citation for the work of art.

Some works of art may be as simple as a gold coin with the   face of a prominent leader from historical times, as explained in your   textbook (Gardner & Kleiner, 2014). Identify an item you are exposed to   or use daily, other than a coin that might someday be perceived as art.   Explain why this might someday appear in a museum.
Your initial post must be at least 200 words in length.
Review several of your classmates’ postings. By Day 7, respond to at least   two of your classmates by examining the same works of art they examined.   Provide your reflection on the work and consider how it is similar or   different from their interpretations.

  Please follow the basic modified APA style citation format in the APA Artwork Citations document   to reference works of art.
