There was a French study published in the journal Learning and Individual Differences which found that students did better on a quiz after a one-hour lecture with classical music in the background than students who learned the same material without the classical music playing. The Herbert Bayer Collection and Archive contains over 8,000 works of art and design, along with extensive documentary material. This internationally important repository is dedicated to the legacy of the Austrian-born Bauhaus master who lived in Colorado for 28 years. The core of this collection and archive came through the artist’s bequest, and scholars visit from around the world to engage in research here.

It is winter. There is snow on the ground. The land occupies only the lower third of the image. The rest is overcast sky. The paper surface is smudgy. The lines are fuzzy and there are a few accents of colour. Form: This sculpture deals with mass, solidity. The colour (black) adds to the sense of solidity. The forms are simplified and stylized and the texture is reduced to simplicity – smoothness. The forms are all rounded and smooth. Brüderlin, Markus.

Jackie York has been with Make-up Your Mind and Fantabulous face painting since the beginning! She has also been a feature artist at several events ! Although she is an excellent face painter, she is also know for her special effects makeup and body painting skills. Throughout Hagia Sophia you can find crosses in mosaic, marble, and bronze. Crosses are the most prominent aspect of the decoration of the church and were placed there to protect the people, the city and the church. There were three crosses and a tree in brick on the outside of the apse that were concealed under plaster and were never meant to be seen. The frightening effects of the darkness of 536 was certainly one of reasons for them. There were more bad things happening. Justinian’s reign saw disasters in the city including the Black Plague (which wiped out a third of Constantinople’s population in a month) and many terrible earthquakes, even two serious ones during the building in 526 and 527. More earthquakes in 542 and 557 lead to the collapse of the first dome in December 558 mentioned earlier. Besides the huge crosses on the walls and doors hundreds of small ones were inlaid into columns and revetment all over the church. Many of these have been pried out, mutilated or painted over, but they are still there.

McCubbin’s painting of the bush are unique in the fact that he doesn’t just paint a landscape showing the horizon and various features. He seems to paint a story “within” the bush. It surrounds his subjects and makes the viewer feel like they are part of it. I am glad these paintings helped you relive childhood memories. Thanks for reading. Thompson, G., & McFerran, K.S.

In 2010 the Gemeentemuseum acquired Lee Bontecou’s bas-relief sculpture, Untitled (1960). The purchase sparked a desire to show this important work in the context of Bontecou’s rich and varied oeuvre. Although all stages of Bontecou’s artistic development are represented in the new exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum, the focus is not a chronological overview. Rather, it is centered on the coherent interconnections between works from different periods and in different media. Drawings made during Bontecou’s years in Greece and Italy in the late 1950s – never previously exhibited – are shown in relation to an imposing suspended sculpture from the 1980s. A reconstruction of a wall of drawings in her studio illustrates the vital role played by drawings in her artistic practice, both in their own right and as they relate to her sculptures. Carrie Secrist Gallery has focused on established contemporary artists, with a recently renewed interest in adding new, emerging artists to its roster. Among our favorite works the gallery has exhibited are Kim Keever’s water tank diorama photography; Megan Greene’s recontextualized Audubon prints and Anne Lindberg’s intricate colored pencil drawings.

Ancient graffiti have traditionally been studied as brief texts, but that is only part of the information they communicate. I propose a more comprehensive approach that considers their content and form and situates them more firmly within their physical and social environment. Engaging more closely with the spatial context of graffiti informs us about the ancient use of space and the human activity within it. It also allows us to see what else, besides text, was inscribed on the walls of Pompeii. The concept of the dialogue offers a flexible model of inquiry and provides a fresh perspective for examining the numerous graffiti of a residential space. From number games to drawings to clever compositions of poetry, the graffiti of the House of Maius Castricius reveal wide participation and a strong interest in the act of writing, a popular activity here and throughout Pompeii.

Timbre , sometimes called “color” or “tone color” is the quality or sound of a voice or instrument. 21 Timbre is what makes a particular musical sound different from another, even when they have the same pitch and loudness. For example, a 440 Hz A note sounds different when it is played on oboe , piano, violin or electric guitar. Even if different players of the same instrument play the same note, their notes might sound different due to differences in instrumental technique (e.g., different embouchures ), different types of accessories (e.g., mouthpieces for brass players, reeds for oboe and bassoon players) or strings made out of different materials for string players (e.g., gut strings versus steel strings ). Even two instrumentalists playing the same note on the same instrument (one after the other) may sound different due to different ways of playing the instrument (e.g., two string players might hold the bow differently).

Hawley-Dolan and Winner also found that it didn’t matter if the students were duped into thinking that the paintings came from the wrong artist”. The duo labelled the pairs of paintings on some of the tests (artist”, child”, monkey” or elephant”) and mislabelled them on others. Even with these tags, the students still preferred the actual professional painting. The labels only swayed the decisions of the psychology students – they were more likely to judge the professional paintings more positively if they were correctly labelled (but not more harshly if the labels were swapped).

Older adults prefer singing and listening activities over other music activities, and they preferred popular music over other types of music. Other than the study conducted by VanWeelden and Cevasco (2009), which only consisted of 36 participants listening to 36 popular songs and songs from musicals, a large-scale study of song preferences has not been conducted to address the music preferences of the current aging population. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine older adults’ preferences for specific popular songs, across the 1900s-1960s, that might be used for music listening and singing activities and therapeutic interventions. Specifically, participants’ indicated if they: 1) had heard the song before, 2) would prefer to sing the song, and 3) would want to listen to the song. Also, participants communicated the degree to which they liked each song as well as stated any particular memories they associated with the song. Further analysis also indicated whether song preferences were within the “young adult years” theory, proposed by Gibbons (1977). A total of 240 older adults participated in the study, ages 70 and older. Twenty songs from each decade (1900s-1960s) were selected, resulting in a total of 140 songs. Song selection was based on previous research studies. Three age sub-groups of older adults (70-79, 80-89, and 90+) listened to the songs. Thus, a total of 20 participants in each age bracket listened to each playlist of songs. This resulted in a total of 60 individuals who listened to each playlist (e.g., playlist 1 = 20 participants 70-79 years of age, 20 participants 80-89 years of age, and 20 participants 90+ years of age). At this time data is being collected, and a preliminary analysis will be provided at the conference. Rich, Sarah K.

This study is one longitudinal study with 3 phases (Study 1, Study 2, and Study 3); infants are randomly assigned to the music therapy treatment group or no music group. Infants in the music therapy group receive music therapy according to the post corrected age at the time when parental consent is given. The purpose of Study 1 is to examine, in a safe and systematic method, the effects of live music on physiological and behavioral parameters of 25-27 week PCA infants. Infants in the experimental group who were 25 to 26 weeks PCA received 15 minutes of music therapy (4 minutes of singing alternating with 1 minute of silence), 2-4 days per week. Infants’ behavioral states were video recorded the 10 minutes before, during music therapy, and 10 minutes post music therapy. Infants’ physiological data (oxygen saturation, heart rate, and respiration) were recorded from the monitors 10 minutes before, during music therapy, and 10 minutes post music therapy. Physiological data was averaged and reported every 12 seconds by the hospital’s medical equipment. Once infants reached 27 weeks PCA guitar accompaniment was added to the music therapy treatment. Fingerpicking was performed at 1 note per second in a very slow, even manner. Malloch, S., Shoemark, H., Črnčec, R., Newnham, C., Paul, C., Prior, M., Coward, S. & Burnham, D. (2012).

Very still because of the cool blues and the central circular shapes where the eye rests. What might the artist be trying to express? Passages of time (from ancient Egyptian to modern?). The artist does not provide many clues as to subject matter. The viewer must work hard to see all possibilities, and in the end can only speculate about them. These results indicate that self-rated music preferences of CI recipients may be affected by a musical environment that these children have experienced. The results also imply that the provision of appropriate musical input and experiences would significantly affect future music preferences and appreciation of CI children. Providing useful information about music preferences of CI recipients in comparison with NH children, this study has significant implications for further studies on this population.
