If you'll recall, Art 245, on the syllabus you are required to perform TWO separate instances of art event write-ups to have done and turned in by the end of the semester. With each of you having your own separate lives, jobs, and responsibilities, no time like the present to instill when/where/what these events are. To clarify, here is the initial syllabus portion-
7) Each student is REQUIRED to attend three out of five (physical) events of the Prospectives 2012 Digital Media festival. Prospectives will be given extensive announcements leading up to the exhibition date of October 18th-19th. The events that may be attended are PRESENT, EXHIBIT, STREET, PROJECT/SOUND, or PERFORM. You are required to write a short two page critical analysis over your three selections and discuss each in detail pertaining to your current practice. (extra credit given to those who actually ask questions at the event!)
Prospectives 2012 : http://www.unr.edu/art/prospectives12.html
In addition, one more art event will be required attendance in the semester. Several optional events for this will be given shortly into the semester. A one page critical analysis of that selected event will be required.
★ ★ ★ ★
So to outline-
WRITE-UP 1 : The Prospectives '12 Digital Media Festival. Three of the events. Two pages of critical analysis. Clear your calendar for the 18th-19th! Do not miss!
WRITE-UP 2 : Any of the below events listed on the official Fine Arts calendar for Fall '12 are good. I will type them all up for you. For this, a one page critical analysis is required.
For turning these in, please post write-ups on your blog (as individual blog posts) AND turn me in a hard copy on or before our final regular class meeting.
