Throughout September 2012, the Walker offers free gallery admission to educators participating in an ArtsConnectEd conversation about global change. Read more about how to join.
- Use ArtsConnectEd's Art Finder to find a work in response to the following questions: When you think of global change, what artwork comes to mind? How are artists making art that investigates our complex world and offers ways to reflect on globalism?
- Write about your choice in a brief comment, statement, or set of discussion questions about the artwork.
- Send your response (artwork & statement) to firstname.lastname@example.org, putting "Global Change" in the subject line. Please include your school's name (if applicable) and the grade level(s) you teach. To thank you, we'll send you one complimentary gallery pass for two adults.
- Consider any facet of global change—economic, political, environmental, societal, informational, technological, etc.
- Answer from your own unique perspective.
- All educators welcome—art teachers as well as specialists from other subject areas.
- Take a look at Asking Art: Global Change for examples.
- Select any work of art from ArtsConnectEd—it does not need to be from the Walker's collection.
- In addition to e-mailing, we encourage you to converse online with the ArtsConnectEd community:
- Comment on the work of art using ArtsConnectEd
- Post your response using ArtsConnectEd’s Facebook page
- Tweet your answer and mention @ArtsConnectEd (That's an extra challenge to express your thoughts in only 140 characters.)
- Build a short Art Collector Set to convey your message.
- Other channels—mention this “Asking Art” invitation through your blog, network of educator peers, etc.
