We are beginning our investigations into art by considering the  question “What is art?” “What does it do? and “Why do we care?”. To this  end I am asking you to:

  1. Think of a piece of art that you have encountered that had an effect  on you. This piece of art could be a public mural, a painting, a  sculpture, any piece of visual art. You could have seen it on your way  to work, on the subway, or in our book this week.
  2. Once you have chosen an art work: 
    • describe the art for us (what it is, a title if it has one, and where you saw it).
    • using this weeks reading as a guide, describe the appeal of the art.  What message or feeling does it convey? How does it appeal to our  senses?
    • describe what purpose the art may serve, or what the art aims to  accomplish. Does it have a political statement to make? Why might the  art have been commissioned or created?
