Module 5 Detroit Institute of the Arts Museum Project Review Assignment

  • Attending the Museum

    While your Art Museum Project is not due until Module 5, it is important to find a museum and put it on your calendar as soon as possible. Since this is an online course, it would be impossible to provide a list of museums that would work for all of you. However, in general, community colleges, universities, local organizations, and community centers are often excellent sources to get advice. For those of you who happen to be located near Schoolcraft College’s main campus, here are just a few recommendations for museum opportunities in Southeast Michigan:

    • Please consider the Detroit Institute of the Arts, as it is one of the top Art Museums in the country
    • The University of Michigan Art Museum
    • The Flint Institute of the Arts
    • The Toledo Art Museum
    • The Eli Broad Art Museum

    If you have any doubts about what concert to attend, consult the Event Calendar Wiki (Course Projects folder) for tips from other classmates. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to find a concert to attend, and attend the concert in sufficient time to write a quality essay.Note: You must include either a copy of your ticket stub or a picture of yourself at the museum for credit.

  • Writing the Review

    Your Art Museum Project will be at least 3 full pages, follow MLA formatting (double-spaced, Times New Roman 12pt font, one-inch margins), and include all of the following:
