Take on the role of an investigative journalist by using the Internet to seek out different kinds of art works -- art that is not conventionally considered to be art. Works of art currently, or traditionally found in museums should be excluded from your examples. Your search begins by looking for ideas in the Classroom Materials, your instructor's assignment notes, and the Library's Guides to Library Resources for this class.

Choose two, specific works of art (not general forms of art) that will make for a captivating news article. Using the art terminology and concepts outlined in the textbook and supplement reading, describe and evaluate each art work chosen by answering the following questions. Elaborate on the details in your own words. Consider including a headline to grab your readers' attention, and be sure to include a clearly labeled URL (web-link) to the image.
