Art is circumscribed by the cultural influences of the era in which it is created. It is a statement of the accepted artistic standards of the time, it mirrors the tastes and preferences of the citizenry, and it reflects the overarching influence of philosophy and religion prevalent in the society from which (and in which) it is created.
Final Project Milestone 3: Discover and outline the influence of the philosophical and religious environment in the era in which your chosen work of art was created.
In Week 1, you identified a local exhibition, event, presentation, or production of an art form that you could attend by the end of Week 4. In Week 2, you selected the art form and, within that art form, the specific work of art that you investigate and explore for your Final Project.
