This project analyzes a print from the UC Art Collection called “Dusty Millers” and the amateur artist that created it. Diving into the artist’s biography and relations, this project first aims to understand how the amateur artist went about studying printmaking and how he became an important advocate for the medium in London. Secondly, the project discusses artistic influences from the 19th century that inspired his style and subject matter of his prints that include depictions of rural landscapes and daily labors.
Draft of capstone class final project. Includes file of images and wall labels for DRAFT of the exhibition. Includes prints from the UC art collection from the 16th century, 17th century, 18th century, 19th century, and 20th century.
The representation of architecture within art is a main theme for artists of all time periods. Within the UC Art Collection, prints display different stylistic approaches from abstract to realistic when portraying architecture. This exhibit will display five prints that compare and contrast the idea of stylistic approach. By viewing these artworks, there is the question as to why artists chose to portray the two types differently. Does the style dictate the importance or function of the architecture? Through exploration, one could say that there is a correlation between the type of architecture and its stylistic rendering. When viewing the examples of the collection, architecture that is considered monumental, such as cathedrals or government buildings, seem to be portrayed with realistic detailing and perspective, leaving no room for artistic expression in the portrayal. On the other hand, common architecture is portrayed with more abstraction but allows more freedom of expression from the artist to interpret the structure. Is one better than the other or do these two separate approaches give their subjects individualized attention to their charms?
This essay investigates the complex subject matter and the significance of Félix Bracquemond’s etching Le Haut d’un battant de porte (The Top of a Door) through a biographical approach, visual analysis, and examination of the artist’s creative process and intentions. The investigation demonstrates that this etching is not only unusual for its clarity, but also for its ambiguity. The seemingly contradictory yet complementary characteristics – clarity and ambiguity – coexist in this work. It is the coexistence and interaction of clarity and ambiguity that makes this work more significant and intriguing.
List of plant species recognized as invasive in the Midwest Invasive Plant Network (MIPN), and either regulated or informational. Shown are their method of introduction (intentional vs. accidental), and if intentional, whether it be introduced by ornamental, erosion control, feed/fodder/crops, aquarium trade, and/or medicinal or culinary uses. This was determined from a review of online sources and the scientific literature, and comparison to the dissertation by Sarah Reichard (1994).
This paper explores the question of why it is important to apply culturally responsive teaching within the classroom, through creativity. Teaching diversity exposes students to a variety of cultural and social groups. This educational experience prepares students to become better citizens, within their communities. Through the creative process, students will examine topics which, both, encompass and promote diversity. Additionally, students will be able to construct their own independent, inclusive environment, through art making; this increase in diversity education relates not only to the race and ethnicity of our students, it also includes religion, economic status, gender identity, language background, and more. Adopting inclusion and awareness around multicultural education and taking a culturally responsive approach to teaching is a benefit to both students and instructors. Not only does creating a better multicultural awareness and inclusive environment help students with different backgrounds and needs succeed, but it encourages acceptance and helps prepare students to thrive in a diverse world.

Classifier algorithms use the features (collectively known as Feature Vectors) of each item in a dataset to assess the classification to which that item belongs.
In this classifier approach, each item represents one document containing the application essay combined with unstructured language describing relevant activities of a single applicant. For privacy, the full text of this document is not provided. Instead, each document is represented only by its features. The feature vector for this classifier is based on the term frequency for each of the identified terms. E.G. Doc_A contains 0 occurrences of any terms identified as family medicine vocabulary, and 10 occurrences of terms from the the non-family-medicine vocabulary.
W2V takes terms from a large corpus of text and models them onto a vector space, based on word associations from your dataset. These Word Associations take into account each word's immediate context (its ten neighboring words).
Following the data modeling (large-scale unstructured text), The platform then generates a visualization of this vector space, which lets us perform analysis e.g. detect synonymous/synonym-ish words and highlight related words. At the heart of this project, is W2V's ability to identify key words that were more frequent - and more unique - to each group using results from 2 different W2V models – one for each group's application texts.
We coded these Key Terms into categories, then analyzed those categories for overarching themes.
