Question description

American Art Project – Assignment Instructions

It is important to remember, represent, and honor a collective past, but it is equally important to understand a deeper significance to visual records. In this assignment, you will examine works of art available through the website of the Architect of the Capitol. The purpose is to emphasize how art can be used to portray historical events and convey a message when viewed in the context of the age in which it was created.

This assignment has 2 parts. In Part 1, you will view the historical paintings that surround the interior space of the Capitol Rotunda and read a short description and history of the artwork. In Part 2, you will view sculptures of some famous Americans who have been enshrined by their state in Statuary Hall. Read through all of the instructions for both parts before you begin. You will submit both completed parts to Blackboard in a single Microsoft Word or PowerPoint document.

Part 1

  • Click on this link:http://aoc.gov/paintings-0
  • The page should open for the Capitol’s Historic Rotunda Paintings.
  • Click on the individual images for each of the 8 paintings to see them in more detail and see some information on the piece.
  • Read the short article on each of the webpages for these paintings.
  • Once you have viewed the images and read the information, choose 4 and write a paragraph for your presentation that addresses each of the following topics:
    • Presentation Questions
  1. What is the author trying to communicate in the image? Is there a mood or emotion that is being evoked?

  2. When was the image commissioned and hung? What is the historical context of this painting? What events were occurring when the painting was created that could have contributed to its content? How are those connections between content and context most clearly presented?

  3. Is the artist successful in communicating contextual influences? Is the message too difficult to understand for a modern viewer?

  • The questions should be answered in essay form, in a narrative style, not as a list of direct answers to the queries. You should include the image, its title, and the artist as a header to each section.
  • You will need to include properly formatted Turabian footnotes/endnotes for each source that you use in the presentation. You will be using the images from the website, so you must cite those pages as sources.
  • If the assignment is submitted in a Word document, each paragraph should be 200–300 words in length, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt. font with 1-inch borders. The Word document will require properly formatted footnotes for the sources used.
  • If the assignment is submitted as a PowerPoint presentation, each paragraph should be on a separate slide with the images and artist information on a preceding slide. The word count applies to PowerPoint assignments and citations should be included using properly formatted Turabian endnotes.
  • Be sure to write your paragraph in your own words and that you proofread your work to eliminate spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors. Be sure to review the Writing Tips document to avoid common errors in academic work. After you have written your paragraphs for each of your 4 choices, proceed to Part 2.

Part 2

  • The page should open to the page for the National Statuary Hall Collection. Once you have read the short overview and description of the collection, search to find the 2 statues that represent your state.
  • Copy the image for each representative of your state into the presentation. (If you are not a resident of the United States or do not claim a “home state” for any reason, you are free to adopt any of the 50 states as your own for the purposes of this assignment.)
  • After the image, include the individual’s name and the state he or she represents.
  • In a 200–250 word paragraph for each image:
    • give a short summary of the individual’s historic significance and
    • an evaluation of whether this individual is a good choice to represent your state.
  • You will need to include properly formatted Turabian footnotes/endnotes for each source that you use in the presentation. You will be using the images from the website, so you must cite those pages as sources.
  • Be sure to write your paragraphs in your own words and that you proofread your work to eliminate spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors. Be sure to review the Writing Tips document to avoid common errors in academic work. These paragraphs will be submitted in the same document as Part 1.
