VIRTUAL MUSEUM CRITIQUE – Many museums have a virtual tour offer on their websites. Take for instance https://www.timeout.com/travel/virtual-museum-tours
(Links to an external site.)
(click link) with 20+ different museums that offer virtual tours. But many others also offer virtual tours. It certainly won’t be the same as going, but its close. This also gives you the option to go around the world instead of sticking just to Orlando. You may choose any museum you want that has a virtual tour, even outside that link. The assignment details are as follows:
Choose only ONE Museum to visit.
You will need to choose TWO visual artworks (painting, sculpture, or architecture) from the same museum. One should be a work you enjoy; the other should be a work you do not like. You can pick any artwork as long as they are showcased in a museum that you “tour.” Please make sure to save and then attach a picture of the artworks to your paper (insert them into your paper – if using Word: Insert>Pictures>Picture from File>Select File>Insert). If you can’t save the image file directly, see if you can do a screen shot of the website and crop the picture that way.
Please then follow the prompt below. You do not need to write this in essay format, but I will expect proper sentence structure, grammar, spelling, but more importantly, deep critical thinking and analysis of the art works and their relation to the class readings and subjects.
900-word count TOTAL minimum – 400 words for each artwork (there are two artworks you are choosing=800). Plus, the Introduction (100 words minimum).
You should answer the following questions for each artwork you are critiquing. This can be written in paragraph format, or you can just answer question by question. You should also write more than just your answers to the questions as to make your critique better understandable. The questions do not count in your word count.
