ART History 109 - Renaissance to Modern - Professor Jones: Wikipedia Project

Art Resources at Harold L. Drimmer Library

Welcome students!

These pages are designed as a guide for using the Library and Internet to complete your Art History 109 Assignments. In general researchers for art and art history utilize: 

  • Visual Analysis of Works
  • Primary historical sources, such as diaries, videos, financial records, interviews with artists, documents, art exhibition catalogues, and art show reviews in magazines and newspapers. 
  • Secondary sources by critics or scholars, including in books or art journals. 

The above 3 categories of sources can be found BOTH in the Library and on the web.

Remember to cite ALL our sources properly using Chicago/Turabian Style. 

Prof. Jones' Assignment

Pick one public artwork in Westchester that does not have a Wikipedia page. There should be at least five independent sources for the artwork you pick. Search through the academic databases in the library. Independent sources are:

 

  • not directly related to the subject or written by the subject.
  • Academic presses, peer-reviewed journals, or national or international newspapers.
  • Reliable publishers that represent a consensus in the field.

Remember, new pages require notability (meaning coverage from a few sources that are more than just trivial mentions).

Upload the artist name, website, and links to five independent sources. Here are few good places to look for artworks and sources:

  • Newspapers local and national.
  • Google Scholar
  • Google Smithsonian Institute
  • Google town name + "memorial" or "monument"
  • Google town + "Historic" or "Historic Preservation" or "Arts Council"
