Virtual museum project, Project Management

Building design - You can select any building to house your museum.  It may be a historical building that we study (i.e. the Pantheon), it may be a current museum anywhere in the world (i.e. the Louvre in Paris), or it may be a building that you consider architecturally appropriate for the art that you will exhibit there (i.e. the Lincoln Memorial or the Georgia State Capitol.)  You will include that in the introduction slide as the picture of your museum. (see below).

Introduction - This will be the first page or slide of your presentation.  It should include the following:

Museum name ( do not use the name of a real museum, create your own)

A picture of the museum

Your name

Your instructor's name

The CRN for your course- this is located in Angel (5 digit #)

Location of the Museum - Include a visual of and the rationale for your location of your museum. This is the second page or slide of your presentation.

Exhibit Directory - Here you will list the five exhibits that you choose to incorporate into your museum and where they are housed in the building. You may choose to make up wing names, etc., for the latter. If you have elected to use a theme, you will include your reasons for your choice in this slide.

Exhibit Number One - Choose the time period for your first exhibit.  Each exhibit is a space (room, floor, building wing) where you will show art work from a given historical period or artistic movement (these correlate with our chapters).  You may begin with an optional choice or the first mandatory time period, the Renaissance.  The first slide for the exhibit must include an introduction to the time period.  Your chapter introductions are a good source of information for this.  You must include 10 pieces of art in each exhibit.  The artwork that you choose for each exhibit must be juried art and may come from any of the following genres:

Drawings/Sketches/Renderings/Paintings

Photography/Film/Videos

Sculpture (full round, high, and low relief)

Architecture

Textiles

Over the course of your five exhibits you will want to include a diversity of artwork.  In other words, not all work should be of just one or two genres.

You must label each work of art with the title, the artist, (in the case of artifacts, you may use the culture if the artist is not known), the date or period of creation and the medium (i.e. limestone or marble or bronze for sculpture or tempera, oil, fresco, etc. for paintings)

Highlighted Work of Art - the last slide of each exhibit should highlight the background of your last work of art.  You may include anecdotal information about its creation, its significance in its genre or its significance in the body of work of its artist.  You will include this information on only one of your 10 works of art in a given exhibit.

Exhibit Choices - You should choose from the following time periods for your exhibits.

The Renaissance

The Age of Encounter

The Counter Reformation and The Baroque

The Age of Revolution

 The Working Class and The Bourgeoisie

The Modern Age

Decades of Change
