Museum Design: Art, Wonder & Discovery, Christy Addis-Gutierrez 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

Museum Design: Art, Wonder & Discovery, Christy Addis-Gutierrez

Theses and Dissertations

Christy Addis-Gutierrez MUSEUM DESIGN: art, wonder & discovery Some art institutions create such an elitist atmosphere that the average person might feel intimidated. But for the artists to be the most effective in expressing their ideas, their feelings, and their point of view, more people need to experience it. If the audience for art is limited to a relatively small group of art lovers, how does that serve the art process? A broader audience could enrich the art that is produced, allowing artists to engage in more daring work. A contemporary art museum that also incorporates spaces for gathering and communal activities, with an active and innovative educational program, could create this broader audience for art, and strengthen the surrounding community as well. Art brings people together – to discover more about themselves and each other. The challenge is to create a space that accomplishes this: more art; more people; more wonder; more discovery. The “big idea” of this project was “more art”. It was generated by the idea of bringing the wonder of art to more people.

Bartleby The Original The Queer, Rebecca Epstein 2010 Pomona College

Bartleby The Original The Queer, Rebecca Epstein

Pomona Senior Theses

Insofar as human beings try to “know” we must define concepts, objects, actions. We label, we distinguish between one concept and another, and in doing this, we make categories. Labels are categories. Our categories are imperfect. Our labels are always relative, defined by and dependent on that which they exclude. The boundaries of our terms, what “counts” as something or what is considered to be within a certain term, are always shifting. Our definitions change based on our method of analysis. For instance, the definition of “human” is different in different disciplines, like science, philosophy, sociology, economics, etc. Given their ...


How Can We Grow If We Destroy Our Roots? An Analysis Of Roots As Metaphor For Growth And Urban Change, Alexis Vaughn 2010 Scripps College

How Can We Grow If We Destroy Our Roots? An Analysis Of Roots As Metaphor For Growth And Urban Change, Alexis Vaughn

Scripps Senior Theses

Roots: They take hold; they grow, expand and change, creating networks and sub-networks as they start to break above the earth's surface and stretch up higher towards the sky day by day. Roots can be taken out (the stock, stem or trunk removed), but both the memory and the evidence of the roots' existence will continue to remain for a while to come. The idea of "roots" applies to so much: from artists taking inspiration from previous artists, even at times to mirror the change in the world which one artist had previously documented; from the places we establish ...

Found And Lost And Found, Marjorie Nuyado Almstead, Erin Marie Casey, Sarah J. Fields, Nicole Elizabeth Godley, Amanda Laura Hirsch, Catherine Elizabeth Sippin, Francesca Tempesta, Anthony Cervino, Trout Gallery

Student Scholarship & Creative Works By Year

Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, April 30 - May 23, 2010.

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Prof. Anthony Cervino, Dickinson College.

For this year's thesis show the seven exhibitors chose the title Found and Lost and Found. Selected for both its poetic cadence and its broad inference to personal sacrifice, the title suggests the common theme of loss and the redemptive notion of personal growth. The students respond to how this theme of "lost and found" exemplifies the process of their art education, the culmination of four years of rigorous undergraduate study, in various ways ...


Dworkinian Liberalism & Gay Rights: A Defense Of Same-Sex Relations, Ngoc Quang H. Bui 2010 Georgia State University

Dworkinian Liberalism & Gay Rights: A Defense Of Same-Sex Relations, Ngoc Quang H. Bui

Philosophy Theses

Recent changes in the politics of gay rights have led to a gay rights demand for liberal governments: i) decriminalization of sodomy and ii) full governmental recognition of civil, same-sex marriages. Challengers to liberalism argue that a neutral liberalism cannot satisfy the gay rights demand. I argue that the liberal political framework put forth by Ronald Dworkin can adequately fulfill the gay rights demand. Dworkinian liberalism, which is neutral with respect to the ethical life, need not be neutral with respect to moral and non-ethical values. I argue for the more modest claim that Dworkinian liberalism has the conceptual tools ...


The Pleiadic Age Of Stuart Poesie: Restoration Uranography, Dryden's Judicial Astrology, And The Fate Of Anne Killigrew, Morgan Alexander Brown 2010 Georgia State University

The Pleiadic Age Of Stuart Poesie: Restoration Uranography, Dryden's Judicial Astrology, And The Fate Of Anne Killigrew, Morgan Alexander Brown

English Theses

The following Thesis is a survey of seventeenth-century uranography, with specific focus on the use of the Pleiades and Charles's Wain by English poets and pageant writers as astrological ciphers for the Stuart dynasty (1603-1649; 1660-1688). I then use that survey to address the problem of irony in John Dryden's 1685 Pindaric elegy, "To the Pious Memory of Mrs. Anne Killigrew," since the longstanding notion of what the Pleiades signify in Dryden's ode is problematic from an astronomical and astrological perspective. In his elegiac ode, Dryden translates a young female artist to the Pleiades to actuate her ...

Sneak Peek: The Urbanatomy Shanghai World Expo Guide 2010

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

When the Shanghai World Expo officially opens on Saturday, visitors will have to negotiate the largest fairground ever constructed, spanning 1305 acres on both sides of the Huangpu River.

Hitting shelves at Carrefour and City Shop stores in Shanghai this week, the Urbanatomy Shanghai World Expo Guide 2010 includes maps of the Expo site, in addition to discussions of World’s Fair history and background on Shanghai.

A Hermeneutical Examination Of Creation In Islam At Georgia State University, Ndola M'Balia Owuo-Hagood 2010 Georgia State University

A Hermeneutical Examination Of Creation In Islam At Georgia State University, Ndola M'Balia Owuo-Hagood

Religious Studies Theses

In traditional Islam, Adam is the first human created. Eve, or Hawa, was created to be his mate and she was made from Adam’s uppermost left rib. There has been a move to argue that Eve and Adam were created simultaneously. I will argue that, because of the negative patriarchal and misogynistic imagery that has been attached to Islam, some feminist Muslim thinkers are attempting to move Islam into a realm where they believe is revolutionary enough to make a new statement in the modern world. These feminist Muslims are making strides to make the Qur'an the sole ...


Voice On The Skin, Sarah Turner 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

Voice On The Skin, Sarah Turner

Theses and Dissertations

“The body can write on the skin from the inside—the soul, the mind, and the passions rise to the surface in boils, blushes, and rashes, and the invisible inside speaks by writing from the other side of the page”. -James Elkins Skin not only covers but reveals what is behind it. I utilize its language as indicator of flaws and pathologies. I depict and manipulate this, not just as it already exists with the human body, but as projections of my psychological states onto inanimate objects. Proposing that sight is a kind of touch, we touch with our minds ...

Urban Country Club, Scott Grooms 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

Urban Country Club, Scott Grooms

Theses and Dissertations

The program of the interior spaces of an urban country club is similar to that of an actual country club. The apparent differences between the two entities, independent of the interior, are primarily the location followed by the amenities offered. This club is set in a vastly urban location, where there is no alluring green space to be allocated to outdoor activities. The urban club must rely on social, indoor recreational spaces for its vitality. The urban club will be located in Riverfront Plaza West Tower, with views of the downtown and river, and will attract the urbanites of the ...
