Field Research (included many images to choose from, find those attached. Select the 10 you think would work best)
Survey your neighborhood to identify 10 objects or environments that you think can be art related or have art content and capture these in photographs.
Develop a connection between these images and the images that are in your text as well as other readings about art.
