For the below-attached Image, write a lable assignment following the below prompts. Please check out the attached example writings for Parts A, B, and C.
- Part A: Be sure to provide the most important information about your image first:
- Collection/Museum (if applicable)
- Note: you do not need to include your image in the assignment unless you want to.
- Part B: Next, write 150-250 words of explanatory text. Consider the following:
- What is the story behind your image?
- Whose story does it tell?
- What is the most important thing a viewer should know about your image?
- Is there something interesting you learned about the image or artist that you think you should share?
- How can we situate it historically?
- (How) Can we situate it historically in a non-biased or less-biased way?
- Is there something important historically about showing your image in the present?
- Part C: Bibliography or Works Consulted.
- Please include at least four sources that you consulted as research for your written label. At least one of these sources should be a book/ebook or an academic journal article (found using one of our library’s databases like Project Muse, JSTOR, etc.)
- Citation styles can be in Chicago or MLA, depending on what most comfortable with, as long you choose one and it use it consistently.
- You do not need to include quotations within your label, and in fact, it should mostly be your own words, but if you do use someone else’s words, it must be in quotations with a parenthetical citation (MLA) or a footnote (Chicago). Or if you paraphrase, you also must credit the author with a parenthetical citation or footnote.
