Due Dates

Monday September 10 - Class 6


This assignment will give you the opportunity to think about Andy Warhol's approach to the image series format as evidenced in a number of print series included in the current exhibition at the Toldeo Art Museum. You will visit the exhibtion (open until September 9, free admission) and select one of the print series to write about. In writing, you will describe the series, what you found interesting in the approach that Warhol took to the subject matter. Analyze how he used choice of composition and style to create a visual impact or meaning. Also think about and describe how he tied the images together to create a series of connected imagery, creating a different experience from that of viewing one of the works alone.

You will present your research in class and be prepared to discuss as a group
