This exhibition includes two floors of artwork. The first floor hosts work created by Art 101 students influenced by works from history. The full assignment sheet can be seen here. Each work is presented next to the work that inspired it. You can read more about what inspired the students by clicking on each of the works in Second Life.

The exhibition also includes a show of artwork by practicing artists curated by Art 101 students. The assignment sheet for this show can be seen here. Each student interviewed the artist about their work. The interview can be read by clicking on each work in Second Life.

Images from throughout the semester, including the exhibition opening can be seen here:

Below are a few of the “Extra Credit” postcards and posters made for the exhibition.

Anthony Fontana’s Art 101: Intro to Art online class in Second Life has begun their summer semester. The first thing the class learned to do was learn to use Second Life using a number of tutorials now on the BGSU Second Life Wiki.

During the second week, students took a field trip to the Sistine Chapel re-creation on Vasar Island. Check out the pictures below! Each student was to find a composition that was an good example of the vocabulary the students were introduced to in class. Each student then communicated to the rest of the class how  they saw the term used in the image. The students are keeping blogs to document their explorations of art on the web and in Second Life using the BGSU blogging system (
