Topic
Current Florida governor Ron DeSantis recently claimed that that Florida is “where woke goes to die,”1 but what is woke, exactly? The concept seems quite difficult to define. The word “woke” engenders a myriad of interpretations, depending on who’s using the term. The polysemous space opened up by such a powerful word in American life is fertile territory for artistic research.

Project
Working artists must often formally propose the creation of an artwork to organizations and foundations to vie for grants and other types of funding. For the final project, students must create a fictitious proposal for an original public artworkLinks to an external site. or spectacle artLinks to an external site. that in some way relates to the idea of wokeness in American life. Use the Module 10 lecture to brainstorm about what kind of public art/spectacle you want to propose. The beauty of this assignment is you can propose a project with virtually no limits regarding scale or cost; you can be as imaginative as you wish. However, the proposal must include the following in one PDF or Word doc:
a written description (What will it look like? What’s it made of? Where would it be installed? Size? Duration?)
an artist statement of no less than 250 words (How do you define woke? Why would you make this? What is your goal with its creation? How does the design of the project create meaning in terms of content and form (hint: use the concepts we’ve discussed to articulate your ideas in the statement, such as ideology, iconology, hermeneutics, and semiotics — for form, think about emotional elements of design introduced in the chapter on form)).
a visual rendering of the project, which could be a drawing, diagram, sketch, maquette, or a schematic, produced either physically or digitally
a rough, itemized estimate of costs to produce the project
a list of references with NO LESS THAN five sources used to inform the project in ANY citation format/style you choose (two of the sources should come from the proof of concept assignment discussed below).
You are also required to submit a “proof of concept” in Module 11, which includes a rough project idea and evidence of your research.
Evaluation
Projects will be based on the following criteria:
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome1. 11Creative Thinking: Engagement + Originality: Does the student create an original contribution within a specific discipline?
In other words, challenge viewers with your artwork proposal and engage with the prompt creatively!
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeCreative Thinking: Synthesis + Collaboration: Does the project synthesize disparate or conflicting thoughts when evaluating questions/problems to form cohesive solutions?
Instead of creating a piece of simple propaganda that is for or against the concept of woke, create an artwork proposal that makes us think more deeply about the issue. While you’re not collaborating directly with others, use the different perspectives out there about wokeness and find a way to synthesize them in the project.
Critical/Analytical Thinking: Does the project engage critically with the subject matter? Does the project show evidence of sound research and analysis?
Demonstrate that you’ve researched the concept of wokeness and that you understand how it’s interpreted on all sides of the ideological spectrum.
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeProblem Solving: Does the project provide potential solutions to the issue addressed?
Solving problems with an artwork isn’t an easy task! Instead of finding literal solutions, think of this criterion as a chance to contribute something meaningful (and perhaps ameliorative) to the debate. What might your project do to help and not hurt the situation?
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeTechnical: Does the project meet all required technical demands?
In other words, are all the parts of the assignment are fully completed? Are they all submitted in a single PDF or Word doc? Was a Proof of Concept previously submitted?
