In this series Holy Cross students created podcasts about a work of art in the Worcester Art Museum. Their task was to present this work of art via a podcast in such a way(s)that it helps a viewer feel less alone when they encounter the work of art and less separate from it. Students were encouraged to imagine someone listening to their podcast as they looked at the work of art, possibly for the first time.
The Ideal Artist
In this podcast, I tell the story of my encounter with George Bellows’, The White Horse, located in the Worcester Arm Museum during the spring of 2018.
On the nature of Time in Hubert Robert's Roman Ruins
In this podcast I tell the story of my encounter with Hubert Robert's painting The Roman Ruins, as I visited this piece once a week for seven weeks.
The Story of Electra
In this podcast, I talk about a famous Greek tale of family conflict and revenge as it is depicted in Jean-Baptiste Joseph Wicar's painting "Electra receiving the ashes of her brother, Orestes". Spring 2018.
My God! Oh, how beautiful!
In this podcast, I look at "Late Sunset" by George Inness, accession number 2000.33, to explore the life of Inness, and, ultimately, the emotions that his painting evokes.
Water Lilies, 1908
In this podcast, I discuss my experience with Claude Monet's Water Lilies at the WAM in Spring of 2018.
Just a Rock
In this podcast, I encouraged listeners to stop thinking and allow themselves to acknowledge the painting right in front of them. Too often we are obsessed with all the things we have to do and fail to just stop- a reflection of what I think impressionism represents.
