Resource: University of Phoenix Material: List of Recommended Websites for Art Museums
Complete the University of Phoenix Material: Museum Website Scavenger Hunt Worksheet.
Note that the worksheet asks you to describe the changes in each era. In this section, below the initial chart, be sure to provide substantive descriptions that demonstrate what you learned about the similarities and differences of each era. Use the Resources section in the bottom right area of ‘Class Home’ for places to find information.
Where can you find “good” information? A great place to start is http://www.metmuseum.org, which is the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Simply place a keyword in the “search” box, such as “Medieval” and artworks will be listed. Choose an artwork that you like, as you’ll be examining it closely.
Medieval & Renaissance: These are periods of time, yes, but it they are also art movements that happened in Europe. You should not choose artworks that were created in India, Africa, and South America, for example. If you’re using metmuseum.org, this will help you avoid that problem.
