Assignment 4: The Virtual Museum

In collaboration with your partner, build a PowerPoint presentation of a Virtual Museum.

A note on collaborative learning: In this assignment it is required that you work with a partner. You will find your partner on the Week 8 Discussion Forum titled “VM Teams”. Partners can exchange email addresses or phone numbers for additional contact information. A couple of days after the assignment is given I will confirm that each of you has contacted your partner and that the two of you are under way. There is no excuse for not working with a partner. Please contact me immediately if your team has an emergency and needs to discuss other arrangements. Here is how you should go about creating your Virtual Museum:

On each slide present an image of the work you and your partner have chosen, and include the statement’s below (you may put your statement on a separate slide). You should have 12 images total (number of images needed appears after each category).  See list of range of work to be included below. Be sure to read all of the instructions and contact me if you have any questions. An extra 10 points will be given if you use a subject, theme or medium for all your work (like armor, shoes, portraits, etc.)

For each image include the following, in this order:




Culture/Style/Nationality/Religion (all or some, depends on the work)

Site you found the image/information from

Brief curatorial statement:  Explain to the viewer any symbolism or interpretative materials they might need to understand the work, information about the culture or artist, time period and style.  Include any information you thought would be important to understanding the work, this may mean doing some research about the style or artist. Make a brief statement as to why you chose this work, what interests you about it, any personal commentary.
