This site serves to document the final project of ART 109: Modern Art History, a course at Drake University in the spring of 2014. Members of the class chose a modern artwork from the movement that they researched earlier in the semester. They then selected a postmodern artwork to serve as a comparison for the modern work, identifying a linking theme connecting the two. Before the site was finalized, the class participated in a pin-up of their comparisons, giving feedback to each other and talking through the pairings. The comparisons reveal new insights into both the modern and postmodern works, drawing out visual and conceptual similarities and differences.
