Campus Art

Art on campus

The benefit to choosing work located on campus for your research is how accessible it is to you. It's also nice to walk to a place on campus, see something, write about your experience and then see where your questions about it take you in the research.

How to ask questions about a work of art for research purposes

  • What is your initial impression of what you are looking at?
  • What materials is it made of? Why do you think the creator chose those materials?
  • Who is the intended audience for this work? How do you know?
  • Is the work meant to persuade? To inform?
  • What questions do you have about the work?
  • Where do you think you should go to learn the answers to your questions? Who would know?
