Schedule a Research Consultation

Goldstein Library provides research consultations with Research Librarians who are interested in your topic and excited to help you research! We are prepared to help you find the information you need to be successful! Our specialization is helping artists and designers find the materials that they need for reference and research (images, books, journal articles, websites, videos, and more); helping you understand how you can use what you find ethically; and how to cite your sources. 

Please note: All research consultations with Research Librarians will be taking place virtually via Zoom until further notice.

Assignment 1

From your instructor:

Define minimalism, arte povera, post minimalism, conceptual art, process art and neo-conceptualism. A couple of well-thought-out sentences will suffice. Look up a sculptor in each of these genres. Make notes with xerox pictures for your sketchbook. Choose a sculptor in one of the categories and begin drawings for your first piece of welded steel sculpture based on your research. I’m not implying you should copy one of these pieces but to use your research as inspiration for your first pieces. I will look at your drawings on in class on September 5th.
