  1. Visually research a contemporary artist on      or Art21. Your selected artist/s MUST be on one of these sites.  or included in the contemporary artist list below.
  2. Curate a Virtual Exhibit of 8-10 images focusing on 2-5 artists working with color as a character. 
  3. To curate your exhibit – research 2-5 artists that you respond to, download and compile 8-10 high quality images, create a title for your exhibit, write an intro paragraph about your “curatorial vision” (this is a short mission of the exhibit)  be sure to site your images with artist name, title, medium and year. 
  4. Create a powerpoint, save to pdf and upload pdf presentation to the Google Drive.
