Description The Cultural Road Trip is an opportunity for you to explore arts resources near where you live or, if you happen to be traveling, near your destination. By the end of this week, you should have completed your visit to a gallery, museum, work of public art; a performance of dance, music, or theater; an art film or a literary reading near you. Now it’s time to write up a 2-page report on a SINGLE artwork you observed during your visit. And remember, you must include at least 3 outside sources from the Library databases. Instructions: 1. Describe your Cultural Road Trip destination. Where and when did you go? Describe the venue: what was the space like? What was the crowd, if any, like? Include the information about location, date and time, and cost. 2. Identify which work of are you will focus on. This can be one work of visual art, a specific song in a concert, one dance piece in a dance concert. If you watched a film, or a play, or read a book, discuss the work overall and then focus on one or two specific parts. Be sure to identify the arts discipline the artwork you choose belongs to: dance, film, literature, music, theater, visual art. 3. Describe the context for the artwork you choose. This should draw from any research you included in your Cultural Road Trip Plan as well as any new information you gather onsite. When you include this information in your report, be sure to use APA format to cite your sources. Review the APA format for online resources, museum labels (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., performance programs (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., and personal conversations (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. with staff at the venue. If you quote material from a performance, be sure to cite the song (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., play (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., or film (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in APA format as well. 4. Describe the medium, content, and FORM of your selected artwork. Review the 5 Things to Look/Listen for Tool for the appropriate discipline that you included in your plan. For each of the 5 elements, write what you observed on your cultural road trip. Be sure to use the Art Analysis toolbox (below). Please feel free to include photos or video of our artwork if appropriate. 6. Conclude your 2-page (500 word report), by writing at least one paragraph on your analysis of the subtext. What does the artwork mean? Be sure to refer to both the context and the subtext, especially the form, when you interpret the subtext. And be sure to use the Art Analysis toolbox (below). 7. If you cannot complete your Cultural Road Trip in the first 3 weeks (because of your schedule or because your event will not take place until later in the term), advise your instructor and note the date and time you will complete your trip. If you must postpone your trip, use this week to get ahead on your Art Analysis Presentation.
