Night Vision




June 8, 2011

Institution ArtsConnectEd

How do artists get ideas for art? This is a question people often ask at a museum or gallery.

In this Set we'll explore one aspect of the imagination: dreams. This topic resonates well in the Walker Art Center's exhibition Midnight Party because many artists create work that is otherworldly or dream-like.

Use this Set as a presentation in the classroom. It contains artworks from Midnight Party and some examples of student-made projects that respond to dreams. Animate the classroom discussion with this hands-on lesson called Night Vision where students recreate their rooms and contrast them with their imaginary dream spaces. 

This Set is designed for students in grades 3-7, and it is complemented by an art activity written in a PDF format. You will find it attached to the last slide of this presentation.

You can find out more about each work by clicking on the "More Info" button in the Present mode.
