EXHIBITION PROPOSAL FORM (to be completed in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint)
1) Exhibition Title:
2) Short Description of Exhibition Theme (100 to 250words): 
3a) Artworks featured in your exhibition Part I. 
1-2 works in your exhibition must be study list images from the second half of the course. These are artworks in PowerPoints from Module 8-14 that are marked in the PowerPoints with the blue notation, “Study List.”
List 1 to 2 works you choose for your exhibition from among the Study List images in the PowerPoints in Modules 8–14. For each artwork provide:
a) Title
b) Artist
c) Indicate whether the work is a painting, a photograph, a sculpture, a video of a performance, a photograph of a building, a work of land art, an assemblage, etc. 
d) Justification (250-300 words). Include a justification that’s specific to the work you choose. Don’t be vague. Avoid generalities. Your justification should reflect knowledge of relevant course content.
3b) Artworks featured in your exhibition Part II. 
1-2 works in your exhibition should NOT be taken from the study list.*  You may choose these works online from a museum website (like the Whitney Museum of American Art, for example, or the Brooklyn Museum) or from an artist’s personal website or from a gallery website.  The works should be “American” loosely defined (art by artists living and working in the United States, the Americas, or by indigenous artists). 
List 1 or 2 works that are NOT from the study list hereand include the following information. For each artwork provide:
a) Title
b) Artist
c) Indicate whether the work is a painting, a photograph, a sculpture, a video of a performance, a photograph of a building, or a work of land art, an assemblage, etc.
d) It’s critical to include a reproduction/image of each non-study list work so I can see it! 
e) Justification (250-300 words) Include a justification that’s specific to the work you choose. Don’t be vague. Avoid generalities. 
What is a justification?
For each of the 3 to 4 artworks in your proposed exhibition, give a brief justification for what and how each work will contribute to the theme of the exhibition you are proposing.  In other words, why did you choose this work? What is it specifically about each work that contributes to your theme? Did you choose the work because of its subject or content? Its style? The material or genre? You can think of your exhibition theme as a visual story. However, it need not be linear. Be creative. Choose a theme that you think will interest people. It can challenge people to think about difficult topics or it can reassure and uplift… You decide what its purpose should be. 
Your justification for each work should show how the chosen artwork supports your theme or contributes to the exhibition narrative. Avoid vague generalities and qualitative adjectives (beautiful, amazing, a “masterpiece,” etc.) In your justifications, include information that reflects your familiarity with course content from the relevant course module. Be as detailed as possible. Do not cut and paste text about the artworks from websites. If you do rely on a website for information about an artwork, cite the website by including a link.
*Are you looking for an artwork that’s not on your study list to include in your exhibition?
You can find some here on these museum websites:
 Making Craft
Selections from the Whitney’s permanent collection
Betye Saar: Call & Response at the Morgan Library 
David Hammons: Body Prints, 1968-1979
Brooklyn Museum’s American art collection 
Feel free to find examples from the websites of other museums or galleries as long as your examples are by American artists (defined loosely as art by artists living and working in the United States, the Americas, or by indigenous artists). For example, no Italian Renaissance art, please. No Picasso, no French Impressionism. Got it?
Tip: If you’re having difficulty thinking of an exhibition theme, you can start by choosing a work of art from the study list that you want to include and use that work of art as a starting point. Think about the different themes the work addresses, topics it relates to, stories it tells, etc., and see if you can develop an exhibition theme inspired by it.
