COMP 354: Write a brief museum label in which you mediate on the idea of innocence in relationship to the artwork. Drawing on our readings and discussions in class, the word innocence has multiple meanings and layers. Feel free to choose whichever meaning of the term you like to engage the artwork.

ARTH 104: Sketch and write at least five sentences describing your impression of each object (one per week) and how you imagine they might have been used in their original contexts.
