Paper instructions:


Part A

1.    Read the following article and analyze the expert’s opinion that art can be a generator of “identity” for a community, and examine what is meant by the statement that “public art ‘humanizes’ cities.”

Haley, C. (2014, Mar 14). Civil art 'humanizes' places, expresses identity, lecturer at NDMOA says. McClatchy - Tribune Business News. Retrieved from http://search.proquest.com/docview/1507232112?accountid=45844.

NOTE: To access ProQuest articles, you MUST first open a Web browser window to the Ashworth College Library (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu/student/resources/enterlibrary.html); otherwise, you will be denied access to the articles. Once your browser is open to the Ashworth College Library, type in the title or URL of the article you need to read.

2.    Many cultures we studied over the past four lessons have specific architecture or artwork that are specific to them and are identified with them in some way.  For instance, the Nankani Compound in Ghana, Michelangelo’s “David” in Florence, Italy, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the Taj Mahal in India are examples from the textbook. Choose two of these examples, and explain the reason the art or architecture was created, how each reflects the community, and how each reflects civic pride or community identity.


Part B

1.    Analyze the development of the skyscraper, beginning with the Chicago School in 1884, continuing with the construction of the Woolworth Building in New York in 1911-1913, and concluding with the Seagram Building in New York City in 1954-1958. Include in your analysis the use of materials and ideas of aesthetics. Your analysis should demonstrate a strong understanding of the material, synthesizing what you learned in the readings, and be written in your own words.

2.    In addition to commercial architecture, many architects of the 20th century were commissioned to design private homes. Explain the circumstances that led to the creation of Fallingwater in 1937 by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Vanna Venturi House in 1961-1964 by Robert Venturi. Relate how physical context or location is related to their design.

Paper instructions:

Below are the instructions.  I would like my review done on Wicked Act 1.
Preparation
Prior to attending the performance (or watching the show online), read a theatre review on the website of one of the following major national newspapers: Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, or Washington Post. You should not look for a review of the exact production you are going to see. Instead, you should look for a review of the same genre of performance. Your goal is to consider the standard way in which professional performances are reviewed. You should keep this in mind as you attend the theatre performance you have selected for this course and as you prepare to write your own review of it. In the works cited section at the end of your written assignment, you will include the citation for the review you read.

Your task for this assignment is to write a review of the theatrical performance you attended (or viewed online).

With the exception of the performance information you will list at the top of your paper, your paper should be in essay format. There should be no headings or text from the prompts included in your paper.
Your responses must follow the order of the prompts as outlined below, with clear paragraph breaks to show that you have followed the prompts in sequence. Your responses to the separate prompts should NOT be combined into one lengthy paragraph.
While you will not be graded on word count or page length, your responses must include specific detail and thoughtful analysis.
The expected length of a paper that meets rubric requirements is more than 1 page, but no more than 2 pages.
Examine the rubric below to see how your paper will be graded.
Please include the following in a list as shown below. This information should be left-aligned.
Performance Title
Date you attended the performance
Place or location of the performance
Name of the playwright (in this format: John Doe, playwright)
Name of the director (in this format: Jane Doe, director)
Name of the group or company who put on the performance

In essay format, respond to the following prompts. Your responses must follow the order of the prompts. You must include clear paragraph breaks to show when you have finished your response to one prompt and begun responding to the next.

First, give a summary of the plot. This summary should be a brief paragraph. 

Second, give a review of the plot or script. Consider: Does the plot make sense? Is it easy to follow? interesting? surprising? too predictable? If you attended the play with other people, you may include their opinions here, especially if they disagree with you. What is the play’s message or theme? This section should be a brief paragraph.

Third, briefly discuss the realism of this theatrical production. In the context of what you read in pages 35-42 in Chapter 1 of Edwin Wilson's The Theater Experience, consider the realistic and nonrealistic elements of this performance. Your response must reference this section of Wilson's text with a direct quotation and include correct in-text citation. This section should be a brief paragraph.

Fourth, give a review of the performance. Your review should include the following topics, in the order shown below. This should be the longest portion of your paper, a hearty one or two paragraphs in length. Make it interesting—it should NOT read like a list!

— Performers How were the actors? Did they perform their roles believably? Was there an actor who was particularly good or bad on stage? Be sure to distinguish between actors and characters; a good actor can portray a bad character very well.
— Set How did the set add to or detract from the performance?
— Costumes How were costumes used in this performance? What was their effect?
— Performance space In what sort of space was the play performed? What was its effect?
— Acoustics or music Evaluate the effectiveness of any music used in the performance, and the acoustics of the performance space.
— Fellow audience members How did your fellow audience members act and/or react during the performance?

Fifth, give an overall review and recommendation. End your review with an overall review of the performance. What were its strengths and weaknesses? Would you recommend this performance to others? For which groups of people would this performance be appropriate and enjoyable? This section of your paper should be a very brief paragraph. 

Works Cited Close your paper with a works cited section. Your works cited should include a citation for the newspaper review you read at the beginning of the assignment as well as Wilson's text, which you referenced in the third paragraph of your paper. For help formatting your works cited section, see the Guide to Using Sources.

Questions We Can Help You To Answer

Paper instructions:

Colour is widely considered to have three attributes and these enable the identification and classification of colour (Gage, 1995, 2000; Itten, 1973).
For substance colour and formula colour, these attributes vary somewhat across the literature and in practice. However, they are generally referred to as:
                        Hue
                        Saturation      
                        Tone      
The effects of colour ‘are contingent upon the interactions of simultaneous contrast and complementarity between different hues, tints and tones; and it affects and connects subjects and objects, ‘fills and forms the world’, thereby co-constituting what is given to experience and ‘making possible…sensing and being sensed, knowing and being known’ (Cubitt, as cited in Beyes, 2016).
Select one attribute of colour. Discuss how your attribute of colour is relevant to one of the following topics:
Color and the Human Response
Categories of Colour
The Renaissance
NOTE: This assignment aims to demonstrate an understanding of the information/readings for this course and supportive personal (scholarly/credible) research.

  •             Grant Wood’s American Gothic Painting
  • Hate Project
  •             The piece of artwork I chose for the Hate Project was Grant Wood’s, American Gothic. This artwork caused somewhat of a stir when at The Art Institute of Chicago in 1930. However, the artwork received a prize of $300. Newspapers across the country carried the story of a farm couple standing in front of a white house with a gothic style revival window in the background. The couple, as it turns out, was Wood’s dentist and his sister Nan. He had asked them to pose in front of the house that enchanted him. The painting was supposed to depict a farmer and his unmarried daughter; however, some believed that Grant Wood used this painting to satirize the narrow-mindedness and repression that has been said to characterize the Midwestern people. This brought about endless pop culture parodies since its initial beginnings. Grant Wood rejected most of these critiques’ and saw his painting as a depiction of steadfast American Pioneer spirit.

  • What could be done to increase affordable housing in Egypt and the Middle East?
  •             Leading Architects in the Middle East are currently focusing more on the development of luxurious apartments, leaving the middle and poor families to struggle for affordable housing. In Egypt, for example, more than 500,000 families in Cairo share house with relatives since they cannot afford the expensive housing in the nation’s capital. There is a great need for change to ensure that the middle and low-income classes do not suffer any more support (Retsinas & Belsky, 2008).

  • Art in Its “Natural” Habitat
  •             After visiting one of permanent exhibits of the Denver Art Museum, I managed to assess how various pieces of the art collection appear in a systematic arrangement. Among the pieces of collection, that I managed to assess included an African art that represented how the culture of the early people in Africa looked like. The exhibition of the collection considered much of the art from the African communities. The exhibition was in one of the museum’s buildings divided into various rooms. The rooms in the exhibition were reflecting white paint and the floor consisted of furnished tiles. The walls in the exhibition had a white paint with various contexts regarding the view of Westerners on the art collection. The exhibition provided an experience from the African community and their interest in the world of art.
