The Sea in a Jug: Selected Labels from the Colby course “Reading Images”

The students in AR 101W: Reading Images have each spent the semester studying a single work of art in the Sea in a Jug exhibition. These labels are condensed versions of their visual analysis papers, in which they were tasked with developing a thesis about their artwork based solely on its visual attributes.
