f Unit 3 Individual Project Deliverable Length: 3-4 pages not including references Details: For your Individual Project assignment, you will compare and contrast a work of art in a specific classification (Renaissance or Gothic) appearing on a WEBSITE with a work of art in your TEXTBOOK of the same classification. You can choose either two Renaissance paintings, two Renaissance sculptures, or two Gothic Cathedrals to discuss (two works in total). You may not discuss works that you have already discussed in another assignment. 1. To begin your project, explore the following websites classifications for your individual essay. A. Visit the following Web sites to review Renaissance art. Links to these Web sites are available through the unit Resources List, in Course Materials. • The Vatican Museums • ArtLex – Earlier Renaissance Art • ArtLex – Later Renaissance Art OR B. Visit these Web sites for Gothic Cathedrals. Links to these Web sites are available through the unit Resources List, in Course Materials. • Chartres Cathedral • A Digital Archive of Architecture – High Gothic • Earthlore Gothic Dreams – Cathedral Architecture 2. Write the Individual Project (3–4 pages not including references): • Using the terminology and concepts you are learning for evaluating art, including materials used, style, meaning, and symbolism, and any other aesthetic issues, compare and contrast ONE of the selected works from the selected websites classification with a DIFFERENT work of art of the same classification from your TEXTBOOK . For example, compare two paintings from the Renaissance period or two gothic cathedrals. Use the following instructions to construct your paper: • For each of the works of art, describe and compare attributes of the works by following the guidelines below to structure your essay. 1. What is the FORM of the work? • Is it a two-dimensional or three-dimensional work of art? • What materials are used? • What techniques or processes are used to create the artwork? • What colors are used? • Describe the use of line, shape, texture, value, color, and balance. 2. Does the work of art have SUBJECT MATTER? • If so, what is literally depicted? • Is the work of art REPRESENTATIONAL, ABSTRACT, or NONOBJECTIVE? 3. What is the CONTENT? • What does it mean or represent? • What is the artist’s message? • Is symbolism used? If so, what is the meaning? • What is the context of the artwork? • What is the function of the artwork? • What traditional role of the artist is exemplified? 4. Explain how the works of art fit into the context of the time period. Keep in mind that only art works that fit into the period of Middle Ages – Renaissance (created between 1350–1520 CE) will be accepted.

||2 – 4 page Report
||The firm currently uses 50,000 workers to produce 200,000 units of output per day. The daily wage per worker is $80, and the price of the firm’s output is $25. The cost of other variable inputs is $400,000 per day.
Assume that total fixed cost equals $1,000,000. Calculate the values for the following four formulas:
· Total Variable Cost = (Number of Workers * Worker’s Daily Wage) + Other Variable Costs
· Average Variable Cost = Total Variable Cost / Units of Output per Day
· Average Total Cost = (Total Variable Cost +Total Fixed Cost) / Units of Output per Day
· Worker Productivity = Units of Output per Day / Number of Workers
Then, assume that total fixed cost equals $3,000,000, and recalculate the values of the four variables listed above.
For both cases, calculate the firm’s profit or loss.
For both sets of calculations, compare the firm’s output price and the calculated average variable cost and average total cost. Should the firm shutdown immediately when the total fixed cost equals $1,000,000? Should the firm shut down immediately when the total fixed cost equals $3,000,000?
For one of the cases, if the firm can operate at a loss in the short-run, how many employees need to be laid off in order for the company to break even? To calculate the number of workers to be laid off, divide the loss for the two situations by the daily wage per worker. Given a lower number of employees now working at the company, what is the change in worker productivity? Is the change in worker too large, and the firm should shut down immediately? Or in your opinion, can the workers increase their productivity, assuming that the units of output per day remain fixed at 200,000 units, so that the firm operates at a breakeven state?
Provide a two to four page report to management of the firm that discusses what should be done.
Be sure to show your work to support the decision you outline in your report.
