Cultural experience

Report on one “cultural experience” visits you make during this term. After each visit, write a 500 word report about the visit and what you learned.

For your two reports, attend two different venues from this list. art museum or sculpture garden significant or notable architectural site (if there is explanatory material there to help you understand it) music concert theater play poetry reading or spoken word performance dance performance Film festival or presentation of a film by an academic author or cinema expert religious service, ceremony or ritual for a religion very different from yours, if you practice (for instance, if you are Christian, you may not go to another Christian denomination’s service) other displays or performances may be acceptable.

Briefly describe the general setting by talking a bit about the location, the number of people there, the general overall “vibe” of the place. Describe at least one aspect of the experience that you found especially interesting. For example, you might write about a particular work of art, cultural artifact, song, dance section, scene in a play, costumes or lighting, a particular character in a film or play, a particular actor or vocalist, etc. Explain what impressed or affected you, and why. Your reaction can be positive or negative, as long as you offer an explanation. Identify and use at at least two tools that you have learned about in this class to talk about your visit. For example, if you visit a museum, you might point out how color works in one of the paintings, or if you go to a concert, how rhythm works in one of the songs. Make sure you are explicit in identifying the tools you are using and the learning resources your tools come from. Make sure to inform the reader about the tool through a quote or paraphrase from the learning resource. Then, make sure to tell the reader how you interpret some elements of your visit with the tools.
