If interested, you may attend the Timken Museum in Balboa Park, writing a paper on the special exhibit and one more artwork. It’s a small but well-stocked gallery next door to the San Diego Museum of Art,
and — best of all — it’s free. Call for directions: 619-239-5548: http://www.timkenmuseum.org/
First, explore the temporary exhibit. You’ll be expected to tell me who it is and what it’s about (there are detailed signs posted). Next, pick any one of the many works there (either something from that show or
the Russian ikons, the Renaissance paintings, the sculptures, etc.) and write me an analysis of the piece. The paper should give me a clear sense of what the work of art is and how you connect to it. Therefore,
study the image and think about how it was created, how it works as an artwork, and what it says about its source or inspiration (possibly a mythological or biblical reference).
To generate ideas, you should use the analytic circle: Ask yourself what you see (literal), what techniques the artist uses (stylistic), what the work says about the human condition (figurative), what it says to you
personally (connotative), and what special qualities – if any — in your own lives help you understand it better (interpretative). The answers to those questions, along with a brief account of your actual visit to the
place, should provide ample material for a good paper. There is no wrong way to do this as long as your paper shows such connections; provided you demonstrate some clear analysis and appreciation of the
artwork, you’ll get credit. You don’t need to use specialized terminology, therefore, though it’s certainly welcome if you know it.
Grade & format: The paper is a comparatively easy way to earn an additional term grade step as spelled out in the syllabus. If you do it according to my requirements, you’ll get the credit; if you miss it or mess
it up, you’ll lose it – it’s that simple. Use an effective structure that carefully guides your reader from one idea to the next, and edit thoroughly so that sentences are readable and appropriate for an academic
audience. Two pages exactly (1” margins, typed, double-spaced, 10/12-pt. type.); on a cover page or in the top left-hand corner, be sure to put your name, my name, our class, and the date. The museum is
open Tue-Sat 10-4:30, Sun 1:30-4:30 (closed Mondays & holidays), so your time is limited. Due Finals Day.
