You will write a paper in 3-5 double spaced 12 point font pages discussing that idea while relating concepts and artworks from the first 8 chapters to it. 

We have been examining art through a thematic approach across cultures and time periods.  Pick 3 different and distinct examples of art from the course to demonstrate that art is a product of its context and show how each culture/time period utilized specific conventions of representation and a method of delivering them. Then, think of a visual expression in contemporary society of the last 5 years and relate it to each of your examples.  How might context affect how future generations look at this record of our visual culture?
