1. Describe the earlier period. Your description should include the characteristics of the style, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of this style. Impressionism:

An organized exhibit by a group of artists that called themselves the Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors and Printmakers launched the movement known as Impressionism in Paris in the late 19th century approx. 1874-1882 (Samu, 2004). These artists (including Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt) ignited a worldwide following; revolutionizing Western conceptions of art and painting. Thought to be a group by the general public and other artists, these painters were very much independent with diverse and varying artistic approaches, although they were unified in their disagreement and rejection of the Académie des Beaux-Arts (Academy of Fine Arts) (Samu, 2004). They were often criticized for their style of work which had a sketch like appearance and unfinished feel to them; although more progressive critics gave praise for their representation of modern life. The ‘subjects’ of their art were oft times commonplace using such settings as recreation and leisure, including landscapes as well. Quick and unstructured brushstrokes were used to portray fluctuation of light. They pursued typical moments in life instead of dramatic scenes, paying special attention to the effects of light and movement using bold color and space as captured by Gustave Caillebotte and Camille Pissarro among others during reconstruction of Paris after the Franco-Prussian War (Samu, 2004). Many impressionists were influenced by prints (i.e. Japanese wood block) and photography (adding perspectives like cropped and tilted). A new practice called “optical mixing” was developed by placing colors alongside each other on the canvas allowing them to be…...

...Task 2 Financial and Leadership Strengths and Weaknesses of the Utah Symphony The financial strengths of the Utah Symphony will now be addressed. One financial strength of the Symphony is the amount of endowments it receives. There are two groups, I and II, which receive endowments. The Utah symphony is in group II and that group gets an average of $8.8 Million per year (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 4). Another major strength would be the amount of revenue brought in by performances. The 2000-2001 season saw revenue at over $3 million and the projected amount for the next season is over $4 million. The total amount between contribution, endowments, and revenue is over $12 million for the 2000-2001 season and is projected to be over $13 million for the next (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 15). The financial weaknesses for the Symphony are almost as much as the strengths however. The major weakness in this organization is the salaries and benefits for the musicians. Because they are under contract, the musicians have a set salary with periodic increases. The expense for this is over $10 million (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 15). This ends up being a huge expense and leaves very little in the way of profit. Another item that adds to the financial weakness is the fact that ticket prices are projected to only increase by 1% while expenses are expected to increase by at least 2.5% (Delong & Ager, 2005). With expenses increasing by a greater rate than income, this will have a detrimental effect...

...The main thing to consider in all of these aspects would be the trends in healthcare. What are other organizations doing? This summary will take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of building, leasing or renting a new facility for the orthopedic line at Trinity Community Hospital. Hospital construction, like most other construction, continues to struggle to recover from the years of economic hardship. Advantages 1. Building- 5,000 sq. feet PT center- $120 per sq. foot- $600,000 The facility would be new and the hospital would have complete control over the design of the expansion. This would give us access the also make modification without approval from any outside parties. With this process the hospital would be able to make energy efficient modifications that might be present in the current facility. These processes would be able to save the hospital on operating cost and set a leading role for healthcare facilities that are going “green”. Building a new facility would help increase in value which would also in turn increase the equity of the hospital. The hospital will also have the ability of leasing any extra space which would build revenue. 2. Leasing- 5000 sq. foot MOB adjacent to hospital-$20 per sq. foot With leasing, the hospital would not have to risk any investment losses that might occur when building or buying a facility. ***One major advantage to this is that there is not as much cash needed up front in order to occupy the space. ......

...IWT1 Task 1 Impressionism and Post Impressionism By WGU student In early 19th century, the French government controlled the academies and salons of paintings. The impressionism took place in second half of 19th century, which was results of French artists rejecting the traditional government sanctioned academic painting that was dominating their arts at the time. The first independent art exhibition was held in 1874 for one month. Few of the famous artists’ who participated and help organize this exhibition was Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renior, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro along with 25 other artists. They displayed approximately 165 paintings during this exhibit. This group of artists referred themselves as the Anonymous Society of Painters, Engravers, Sculptors, etc. The artists from Impressionism period intentionally painted which captured the nuances of light and beauty of natures. These artists were against painting a picture of moral messages, as the artists of past they mostly painted in studio. Impressionist had very firm understating of color theory, optics, nature of light, and optical mixing (created much more vivid colors in the eyes of the viewers). The invention of photography had profound influence on the artist of the day, the way they handle perspective in the relationship between subject matters in space. The invention of photography essentially freed these painters to become more abstract with their subject matter, they......

...IWT Task 1 Western Governors University Literature, Arts and the Humanities IWT1 IWT Task 1 Abstract Artwork is defined as: a painting, sculpture, photograph, etc., that is created to be beautiful or to express an important idea or feeling: an artistic work. (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/artwork) and dates back to the Old Stone Ages. Artists capture certain moments in time and express their inspiration in a vast array of styles, such as; social and political events, religious and mythological depictions, ornate and affluent periods, tangible subjects that portray life accurately and in-motion, cultural movements, abstract images, and pop culture. The two movements that inclined the writing of this paper were; Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. The reason why I chose these two eras is I felt the artists of this time period were brave enough to create what they felt with very little acceptance or approval from their colleagues. Impressionism was developing new creations by changing the subject matter of artwork. It was no longer depictions of history, mythology or royalty; it was now about landscapes and capturing a certain moment in time. The smooth brush strokes of their predecessors were no longer apparent, and this new form of painting entailed; short brush strokes, wet paint applications directly onto the canvas, and juxtaposition. Impressionists liked to focus on capturing the optical effects of lighting and color. Post -Impressionism took it......

...The Classical Period The Classical Art Period consisted of ancient Greek and Roman art and fell between the years 900 BC and 31 BC. During the Classical Period, Athens and Sparta were dominant cities in the Greek region. These cities were suspicious of one another, but managed to live peacefully together until the 5th century, BC. Cultural and political differences between the two cities caused a rivalry to form. The rivalry was eventually quelled after a brutal war which ultimately ended in the demise of both cities and the rise of Macedonia as the dominant power in the region. Eventually, the social structure in the Classical Period became somewhat of a democracy and an open society which we have emulated in the United States (“History of Greece: Classical Greece”, 2014). Many other wars occurred over the course of the Classical Period, and this culture of war contributed to the realism of the art of the time. The brutality of war and the effects it had on Greek society inspired artists to focus on man, rational thinking, and logic (“History of Greece: Classical Greece”, 2014). Greek artists in the 5th century, BC began to realistically imitate humans and animals through art (Boardman, 2012). These Greek artists gained a better understanding of anatomy and the human body’s mechanics, giving them the ability to realistically render the human form in multiple positions without appearing awkward. Logic was valued over emotion in sculptures. This means that facial......

...FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS, METHODS, & MODES IN THE HUMANITIES – Task 1 A1 - Renaissance The Renaissance period began in Italy around 1300 and spread throughout Europe during the 1400 and 1500’s. This period signified the beginning path to incredible change in customs, ways of life and institutions that had existed in Europe for almost a thousand years. Many of the new ideas of this period still influence our lives today. The beginning of this period the European countryside was broken up into large estates owned by the wealthy nobles. Most people were peasants, who worked the land for the noble owners. All parts of life centered around religion mainly the Catholic Church which was very powerful. Throughout the Renaissance, the large estates were taken over by royalties like kings and princes and built strong kingdoms and national governments. The people began to move from the farm to the cities. The Protestant reformation weakened the Catholic Church and divided Christians into many different groups. (Renaissance Art. 2013). I believe the greatest milestones that came out of the Renaissance are was that of Art and Education. This was a period of rebirth of the classic ideas of ancient Greece and Rome, and at this time, there was a great deal of energy placed on man rather than God. Art of this time used new forms and techniques to show the ideas of this new age. The Art was focused on glorifying man. Renaissance artist were sought-after and gained fame during this...

...Art of the middle ages (which lasted from the 5th to the 13th century) was very religious in tone and content, especially in Europe. Art was overwhelmingly funded by the church, as the catholic church was the dominating force in European politics and had a greater influence than the political state. Portraits of the madonna were very common. Paintings were very often produced by members of religious orders such as monasteries. It is interesting to note that most of the art produced was in the form of paintings often done in illustrated manuscripts. The figures in paintings produced in this era were very flat. The colors were very muted most of the time, with the exception of using real gold leaf as an accent. The figures in paintings of the era rarely had shadows and possessed narrow faces with solemn expressions. There was no perspective in art of the middle ages; all of the paintings were flat and one-dimensional. Artists of the era made little to no attempt at realism. There was a fair amount of artistic evolution towards the end of the era. Paintings became brighter in color and tended towards more realistic imagery. Perception began to develop, causing images to look less flat. Paintings began to use different lighting and incorporate shadows. Art in the Medieval era evolved into more realistic imagery. ("Middle Ages Art." Middle Ages Art. N.p., n.d. Web. 15 Dec. 2013.) The evolution in art of the later middle ages culminated with the Renaissance era (the 14th to......

The poem “Praise Song for the Day” sheds light on the hardship and past life of African Americans and the type of life they lived to get where they are today. Everything they build up and fixed to continue to work and maintain it all in the future. The feeling of looking to something greater, God, and living by His codes to have a brighter life are some of the ways human condition was shown in this poem. I relate to this poem by reading about the building and repairing process these people have done. I will be building and maintaining computer networks just like their brick by brick houses. This knowledge is helping by changing my perspective when coming to a difficult task by changing into something I can visualize better, like building a house or patching a blanket, string by string. The song “It’s All About the Pentiums” has a strong theme of how necessary it is for us to continually upgrade technology. The mood of dealing with slow technology in this song is embraced through sarcasm and irrational comparisons. Most of the sarcasms used were meant to try and make their computer faster or show how small the storage space was. I can relate to the use of these sarcasms in my profession because most of the people I am out there to help have older computers needing upgraded or fixed. Their complaints may sound just like the uses of sarcasm throughout this song. I feel it is always good to......

...IWT1 Task One Paul Gurns WGU Art from all periods share many similarities but they also have some profound differences as well. Throughout time artists have taken from prior periods and helped shaped future ones. In this essay I will compare and contrast art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance periods. A1. Earlier Historical Art Period The Middle-Ages is a period of time between the 5th and 15th century. Most art during the Middle-Ages was commissioned by the Catholic Church. Therefore the art tends to be mostly religious in nature and focused on creating symbols of Christian concepts and values. Artwork from this period served a purpose such as teaching spiritual truths and lessons, as a meditation aid, or even used to try and convert non-believers. Since the purpose of art during the Middle-Ages was to give glory to God, it was not common practice to seek personal recognition thus many pieces from this period went unsigned. Artists from the Middle-Ages didn’t focus on realism and most artwork from this period looked shallow, flat and lacked perspective. There was little to no use of lighting and shadow during this period. A2. Later Historical Art Period The Renaissance was a period of time between the 14th and 17th century. Art during the Renaissance period was used to show the beauty in nature which included human beings. Renaissance art often depicted everyday life and was very focused on realism and tried to portray things as they looked. There was more......

...Utah Opera & Symphony Merger JFT2 Organizational Management ~ Task 1 Western Governors University January 22, 2012 THEORY OF MOTIVATION In order to support the merger, Bill Bailey needs to address his subordinates with the merger in a supportive way. The Utah Opera Organization and the Utah Symphony are both dealing with surmountable obstacles in regards to the survival of the arts. It would be beneficial in the long run, for the future of the arts to stand as one mighty organization rather than two separate entities. There has always been strength in numbers. Bill Bailey can support the merger using McClellard’s Need Theory. The merger will give the Opera a chance to overcome their current issues with finances and production. The need for achievement which indicates a desire to accomplish something difficult is a prime example of why the merger should be supported. (Kreitner, 2008). The Opera is under pending stress and without the merger the Opera may not survive in the long run. With the merger the Opera will have a better chance of success and achievement. The merger will also increase the affiliations the Opera currently has. Social relationships are fundamental for the success of the merge. These relationships will help ensure the future success of the merge. The merger also brings the opportunity to teach and encourage each member from the other company. The merge will bring new goals to help achieve optimal success. ......
