1. Visit a

professional performance


public art/museum exhibit

relevant to one

of the

religions we are studying in this course

. Make sure the

performance/exhibit deals with


iterations of that religion in particular

(do not, for example, tell me about the European art section at a museum).

Submissions that do not focus on the United States will receive a “0.”


suggestions for performance venues or museums are listed below.

2. Write a 2-3 page reflection on the performance/exhibit (

Double space, 12 pt.


). Please include the following in your reflection. Designate each section with

its corresponding letter.

Failure to follow this structure, including letter

designation, will automatically result in a loss of 25 points.

(NOTE: the

subsections under each letter designation are instructions or guidelines and do not

have to be included as part of your project’s structure):

a. The name of the performance/exhibit.

b. The date you attended.

c. A brief description of the performance/exhibit.

d. How did the performance/exhibit reflect what we have learned in class


religion in America


i. If you found the performance/exhibit to be inaccurate, then write

about how it is inaccurate in this section.

ii. You may use our in-class discussions and/or course reading

material, but you

may not

use outside sources. Depending on the

severity, outside sources will garner a significant loss of points.

iii. If only a portion of an exhibit pertains to religion in America, then

state that and focus on that portion.

e. A description of your experience as an audience member. (What was your

experience? Did you enjoy it? Was it well done? How did it make you

feel? Etc.)

f. What are some of the things you learned from this performance/exhibit

that we did not cover in class?

i. If the performance/exhibit offers no new information, write about

what you would like to learn more about?

More Notes on grading, etc.


1. If there is any indication that you have submitted the assignment without having

attended the performance/exhibit, you will receive 0 points.

2. Please make sure you attend a

professional performance


museum exhibit

. In

humanities, we must abide by strict ethical guidelines, which precludes you from

attending a religious service or using any material that is not meant specifically

for public exhibition (eg. church architecture unless specified as a public

attraction) without the proper approval. The approval process is too extensive to

do in this course.

Submissions that do not meet this criteria will receive a “0.”

(If you are unsure if your project meets this criteria, please see #8 below for the

deadline to contact me).

3. In the past, student have attempted to submit reflections on online performances

or exhibits. This is unacceptable and

will result in a “0.”

You must go

somewhere for this project (DRC exceptions will be given consideration).

4. I expect proper grammar and spelling.

5. I don’t require photographs because some performances and exhibits prohibit

them. You may include photographs if you want, but they will not count towards

your page count.

6. Follow the page count closely.

Do not go over or under by any amount

(I do

not round up or down, so do not submit a 1 ½ or 3 ½ page paper).

a. Note that I have not given specific word or sentence ranges per section as

this will be different relative to your chosen performance or exhibit. Use

your discretion in this regard. That being said, make sure you are turning

in quality work…do not take the easy way out! I hope you enjoy this

project, but please take it seriously!

7. If you have any questions about your Experience Project,

you must email me by

November 4

. I

will not

respond to questions regarding this project after this date.

You may also send me a draft to skim over by this date, but not after.
