The Project Paper focuses on a suggested topic related to art,
architecture, history, music, or literature. The project will reflect
your views and interpretation of the topic. This project is designed to
help you stretch your mind and your abilities to be the creative,
innovative, and critical thinker you already are!  

Choose one
(1) of the topics from the list of topic choices below. Read the topic
carefully. Write a three to four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) that
responds to each of the items described in the topic. 

For the topic you choose:

  1. Support
    your ideas with specific, illustrative examples. If there are questions
    or points associated with your chosen topic, be sure to answer all of
    the listed questions and address all of the items in that topic. If your
    topic asks you to do several things related to the topic, be sure to do
    each of the things listed.
  2. While some of the topics tend to
    lend themselves toward particular writing genres, you are not restricted
    to the specific format suggested for the individual topic. For example,
    you may do an “interview,” a “proposal,” a “letter,” a “short story,” a
    “blog,” an “essay,” an “article,” or any other written genre for almost
    any of the topics. The project is intended to be fun as well as
    informative, so feel free to be creative with the delivery of your
  3. Use at least three (3) good quality academic sources, with one (1) source being the class text.
    Note: Wikipedia
    and other similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources. You

    Blackboard page. 

Note:  Your instructor may require you to submit your topic choice for approval before the end of Week 5. 

Topic choices (pick 1): 

  • Office Art Memo. Memorandum.
    Your boss, who knows you have been taking a humanities class since he
    pays for your tuition reimbursement, has tasked you with managing the
    art budget for your company, expecting you to choose various pieces of
    art for the new corporate offices.  (Note: Replicas of the works are
    acceptable since they are more cost-efficient and you are working on a
    budget.)  Include the following: 

    1. Identify three (3) examples
      of 19th century Impressionist painting or sculpture and three (3)
      Post-Impressionist works. Explain how the six (6) pieces of art fall
      into these two (2) styles. 
    2. In a memo, describe the appearance
      of your six (6) choices to your CEO so he or she will know what the art
      looks like and where it would be placed in the corporate offices. 
    3. Explain why each piece is considered to be historically significant. 
    4. Explain
      how each piece “fits” your company’s overall (or desired) corporate
      image. Keep in mind that a piece of art is supposed to “say” something
      about the owner, so describe what would these pieces of art say about
      your company. 
  • New Composition. Speech.

    make to the composer’s agent. Include the following:  

    1. Narrow
      your choices down to three (3) composers you’ve studied in this course.
      Choose one (1) of the composers and explain why you want him to write
      the “birthday present” music. 
    2. Explain why the other two (2) composers were ultimately not selected. 
    3. Specifically
      identify the musical elements in the composer’s style that you would
      like to be included in the new music written for your uncle. 
    4. Describe
      what sort of emotion is generated by listening to the works of your
      selected composer; in other words, what do you want your uncle to “feel”
      as he hears the music, and why is this composer so perfect for this
