University 300I (Fall 2004): Culture, Creativity, and Ideas

Second Writing Assignment
Due: Wednesday, November 3 (at group meeting time)

Assignment: Written report: 4-6 pages (800-1000 words)


Attend one from the list of campus art activities below and answer one (and only one) of the questions below (question 1, 2, or 3), drawing explicitly on concepts and ideas of the class meetings and readings of Weeks 4-8. Your essay should include a brief description of the work in layperson’s terms. Choose the question that provides the most potential for substantive discussion for the work you choose:
Question 1: (a) Develop the strongest arguments you can that this work of art should be protected by the First Amendment right of free speech, AND (b) Develop the strongest arguments you can that this work of art should not be protected by the First Amendment right of free speech

Question 2: (a) Develop the strongest arguments you can that this work of art should be funded by the Federal government, AND (b) Develop the strongest arguments you can that this work of art should not be funded by the Federal government.

Question 3: What is “political” about this work? Are there any political statements being made in this work and, if so, what are they? In what ways does this work fulfill Devereaux’ suggested criteria for combining formal concerns with political ones? In what ways does it not?
If you would like to attend a campus art event that is not listed here, please check with your discussion group leader for permission.
Do not write about a work that you used for the First Writing Assignment. Also, choose a

different medium than you chose for your first paper. For instance, if you wrote about a

film for your first paper write about a dance performance or a painting or some other

non-film work.
