Extra Credit Opportunity
Famous works of art have found their way into many different aspects of popular culture. From movies, tv, to music videos, many famous works of art have
made special appearances.
You can choose one of the following examples of famous art in popular culture (or you can choose your own) and write a one-page paper (12 Times New
Roman, double spaced, regular margins) explaining why you think that particular artwork is making an appearance. Be sure to back up your argument with
information that you’ve learned from the class.
If you submit this assignment by 12/12 at 11:59 pm, I will change two of your lowest grades (quizzes, discussions, and class assignments ONLY) to 100s.
Links to examples you can choose from:

• Though this painting isn’t a specific work by Modigliani, the director has stated that he wanted to use something related to Modigliani’s style because of his
own childhood fear. Look into Modigliani’s work and explain why you think the director wanted to use something that resembled his style.
