Ancient Art Bash/Archival Digging for Archaeology Day

Sponsored by AIA: Gainesville Society

AIA Society Event: Gainesville

Friday, October 18, 2013 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Location:
University of Florida (FAC Room 201)
101 Fine Arts Building A
Gainesville, FL 32611
United States

In honor of Archaeology Day, we will be hosting a room in conjunction with the College of Fine Arts' annual Art Bash event.  The fun begins at 6pm this Friday night.  Our exhibit will be located in FAC room 201. The theme is "Ancient Art Bash/Archival Digging for Archaeology Day."

We have three "centers" that will be on display in the room:

We will feature a digital reconstruction of the archaeological site of La Venta (Mexico) headed by Susan Gillespie, based upon her discovery in the archives of the Smithsonian.

We will also have a "Cataloging Center" where students will have a chance to record actual artifacts, just as an archive would do after a dig.

Finally, we will have a life-size puzzle of one of the buildings at the archaeological site of Copan.  The mystery of the puzzle is not in the shapes of the pieces, but in the epigraphy depicted on each block. Participants will have a master image to work from as they try to coordinate the pieces, but can imagine the challenge archaeologists and art historians face in attempting to reconstruct ancient structures that have fallen to rubble.

Ancient Art Bash: Digging in the Archives for Archaeology Day

Sponsored by School of Art and Art History, University of Florida

AIA Society Event: Gainesville

Friday, October 18, 2013 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Location:
University of Florida, Fine Arts C 116A
Gainesville, FL 32611
United States

As part of the Art Department's annual Art Bash, we will have displays and activities that involve students in processes that take place after an archaeological dig:

  • A CAD video will play featuring a digital walk-through of the now-destroyed Olmec site of La Venta in Mexico.  (Image based upon actual measurements from archeological field note books whose data was originally published incorrectly.)
  • A puzzle in which students can take (photocopies of) building rubble and try to piece a Maya temple back together, just as art historians and archaeologists do in the field and in the lab.
  • A cataloging activity that shows students the process of organizing artifacts after the dig using actual objects and fragments from the Isle of Rhodes.
