This past Fall, we in the Art History department welcomed Keely Heuer to the faculty as our specialist in ancient art.
I am happy to report that her energetic and engaging teaching included a delightful extra credit project, Becoming a Masterpiece, for her students in Art of the Western I survey.
She challenged her students–
“Put on your thinking caps, and call upon the Muses…the Idea: create a living work of art by replicating famous objects from the past and photograph yourself doing so. At the very least, you must be in the picture, but you can recruit friends and family to join you as well. The only limit is your imagination.”
Here are the results! Can you identify the works of art?
