Artists give new meaning to common objects

Artists often incorporate elements of the everyday world into their art, transforming them and infusing them with new meaning. As we consider the artistic potential of familiar objects, we come to see them in a new way.

Researching and Labeling Objects

Students will research everyday items that interest them and present their findings in the format of a museum object label.
