Art History: Introduction

Mon Sep 22, 2014, 12:00 AM by DistortedSmile:icondistortedsmile:

Art History Week

Art History Week 22nd - 28th September

Art History was a Project started by the Community Relations Team in 2011. It's aim was to engage the community by looking at the origins and beginnings of the art we all so passionately love today.

As a Team, it's easy for us to become insular and confined within the galleries we moderate and the genre-communities we support. When in reality our passion and knowledge stretch to other realms of the artistic universe, often from school days or independent education we've searched for. The same is, I'm sure, for the wider community.

Frequent authors of articles include: KovoWolf  Peter-The-Knotter Talty lintu47 Kaz-D STelari

This meant we wanted to open it to everyone: all members of dA and irrelevant of your current profession or specialisation. If you're knowledgeable and confident on a topic then the stage is yours :)

In 2012 we opened the ArtHistoryProject group, to create a dedicated space for the articles that were coming in from the community.

From the group, the first phase we completed dedicated a month to each major Gallery; Traditional, Photography, Digital, Lit etc. Over the next 12months, over 250 articles were submitted through ArtHistoryProject, by hundreds of deviants.

At the end of 2013 we started the second phase of the Project, which would display all articles in chronological order, inviting even more talented deviants to participate and explore art together.

Since the start of the Project, over 400 articles have been created by members of deviantART

In the summer of 2014, the Community Relations Team made the decision to merge the ArtHistoryProject group with projecteducate, to continue the momentum and energy needed to sustain projects of this size. We combined the CV Admin team of both projects and have enjoyed even more participation and interaction from the community for both ventures.

The Art History featured weeks will be regular and can include features, contests, education pieces, interviews, chat events and much more. The frequency, of course, depends on YOU! ;)

I hope you enjoy the week as an artist, a contributor or simply as someone with a hunger to learn more and revel in the knowledge and skills of others.
