The Open Mind of Lafcadio Hearn: Quiz

The visits in March 2010 of Junior High School students from Pierce College to the ACG Art Gallery's "The Open Mind of Lafcadio Hearn" exhibition was an educational success.

In my capacity as ACG Art Curator, I offered a quiz (as above) to the students, which was cleverly designed to involve them and make them consider the significance and meaning all of the exhibits.

a) In response to instructing the students to "put in a circle the name of the artist who created the work that you liked the most" the quiz yielded the following result:

Demosthenes Agrafiotis (0); Christos Antonaropoulos (2); Murshida Arzu Alpana (1); Zacharias Arvanitis (2); Konstantinos Bobos (2); Ismini Bonatsou (2); Eileen Botsford (0); Giannis Diamandis (0); Lena Dimova (0); Costas Evangelatos (1); Sophia Fotiadou (0); Christos Garoufalis (1); Tina Kambani (1); Nicole Kapari (0); Koshin Kawatsou (3); Harris Kondosphyris (11); Vassiliki Koskiniotou (1); Nikos Kryonidis (1); Panayiotis Lambrinidis (2); Vassilis Liaouris (0); Panagiotis Linardakis (0); Alexandros Maganiotis (0); Megakles (1); Yiannis Melanitis (1); Alkistis Michaelidou (0); Eva Mitala (0); Nicholas Moore (0); Spyros Moschoutis (1); Evangelos Moustakas (0); Jan Mulder (2); Barbara Nahmad (0); Masaaki Noda (2); Kostas Paniaras (1); Lea Roussopoulou (0); Seiho (0); Dimitris Sevastakis (0); Vassilis Solidakis (0); Magda Tammam (2); Yorgos Taxiarchopoulos (1); Christos Theofilis (0); Sotiris Therianos (1); Sofia Touboura (1); Nikos Tsarouhas (3); Filippos Tsitsopoulos (4); Praxitelis Tzanoulinos (1); Yumiko Yoneda (0); Apostolis Zolotakis (1).

b) In response to instructing the students to "put a tick in the box that corresponds to the best explanation of the reason you chose the above artist" the quiz yielded the following result:

Aesthetic Artwork (19); Conceptual Artwork (31).

Such exhibition quizes as the above are useful tools for education because they make students 'digest' the information they receive.
