What is art bibliography

Alder, Katherine. “RCMP Gazette.” Government of Canada, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, 6 Jan. 2015, www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/gazette/graffiti.

This is a piece written on the Canadian Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which complains about graffiti as ugly. This was important for me to add in contract to the laws of Toronto that accepts graffiti art and understands the difference. Government officials had this posted to their website and it was a blatant disregard to artists whom are respectful and create beautiful creations. In my podcast it will be a contrast to how others view it and an example of how some people don't respect graffiti as an art form.

Barwell, Ismay. “How Does Art Express Emotion?” The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, vol. 45, no. 2, 1986, pp. 175–181. JSTOR, JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/430558.

This is a peer reviewed article from jstor, it goes very deeply in how art expresses emotion as guessed by the title. This will help my podcast because it will help better understand the function of art, and then therefore will help develop the meaning of an artist. A lot of my podcast is about why emotions are used in art, and this will be able to let me expand on the how as well.

Diffey, T. J. Tolstoy's "What Is Art". London ; Dover, N.H.: Croom Helm, 1985.

Found from the York university website, a university library archives are reliable. This book explores the definition of art from this authors perspective. He talks about what makes art, art, and the intentions behind it. This is helps my pitch because it has one persons respected, and culturally different opinion to myself, and those around me . I use his table of contents to see how he has organized his information, and the different ways an art critic will look at a piece of art.

Geahigan, George. “Art Criticism: An Analysis of the Concept.” Visual Arts Research, vol. 9, no. 1, 1983, pp. 10–22. JSTOR, JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/20715530.

This is a peer reviewed article from Jstor. It starts off with “What is it that art critics do when they criticize?" "What should teachers or students do in criticizing?," and “What is the relationship between what critics do and what teachers or students” Which caught my eye because it takes about art criticism from a perspective I did not know. It is another way of criticizing art and it will help me narrow my own opinions towards a final so what answer.

Gough, Paul. Banksy: the Bristol Legacy. Redcliffe, 2012.

This book is all about the famous graffiti artist named Banksy. He is a modern-day artist and adds another layer to the many different kinds of artists there are. This is found in the York University Scott library. For my podcast it is used for the criticism in the back of the book that says he is not an artist. It complicates my message and I am able to use a counter to further my argument.

“Hill Strategies.” A Statistical Profile of Artists and Cultural Workers in Canada | Hill Strategieswww.hillstrategies.com/content/statistical-profile-artists-and-cultural-workers-canada.

This website has a whole bunch of statistics based on a survey about Canadian artists. I think it’s really useful for my podcast because it gives exact numbers about artists, and squashes some of the myths people have about them. The one statistic that jumps out is about artists being highly educated which will give my argument leverage about validating artists.

Jeffers, Carol S. “What Happens When We Ask, ‘What Is Art?".” Art Education, vol. 52, no. 1, 1999,  pp. 40–44. JSTOR, JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/3193784.

This article is also from J-stor, and it talks about how we define art and whether we are asking the right questions about it before we even start talking. This is exactly what my podcast is and starts off with art history to help explain what he means by “when is art”.

Stillmunks, John. “No, Not Everybody's an Artist (Despite What They May 

Think).”  EmptyEasle, 2011, emptyeasel.com/2011/10/06/not-everybodys-an-artist-


 This is my main article that sparked my interest in this topic. I only touch on it once in the introduction of my podcast. He discusses the different types of art that are recognized in the art community, and the ones that don’t deserve to be there. 

Opinion, Lorrie Drennan in Misc > Art. Yes, I am an Artist (Despite what a few may think), emptyeasel.com/2011/10/21/yes-i-am-an-artist-despite-what-a-few-may-think/.

The website is an art website, which holds everything under the sun you need about art. It has option articles, tutorials, products etc. Another one of the main points of this website is to share and create art. This article is a direct response to the main piece I am using called "yes, I am an artist". It is a popular article discussing why her art is valid for all of the reasons the original says she isn't. 

Philinthecircle. “Egyptian Art History .” Edited by From Goodbye-Art Academy, YouTube

YouTube, 12 May 2014, www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibp_i7bekQU.

This is a YouTube video, one of many that I watched for the information I needed on art history. I wanted to post one that explained it is a short video packed of information about said time in history. 


Scheffer, Marten, et al. “Teaching Originality? Common Habits behind Creative Production in Science and Arts.” Ecology and Society, vol. 22, no. 2, 2017. JSTOR, JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/26270137.


This is a peer reviewed article from j-stor, so I know it is reliable. It is about the connection between art and science, and the education behind it and how it affects us. This is going to be really useful in my podcast for some facts about science to have hard evidence in a very opinion-based subject.

Suhr, H. Cecilia. Online evaluation of creativity and the arts. Routledge, 2015.

This source is from the York u library website therefore it is a reliable source. It is called Online evaluation of creativity and arts. It is about the influence social media has had on art and creativity. This includes new art forms that are created because of these new forums have appeared as a new platform for artists. This will be good for my pitch because it explores the birth of art even in today’s world, and how the definition is changing by day. It looks at a new world of art than the ones traditionally looked at in the art community.

Toronto, City of. “Graffiti Management.” City of Toronto, 25 Jan. 2018, www.toronto.ca/services-payments/streets-parking-transportation/enhancing-our-streets-and-public-realm/graffiti-management

Toronto laws about graffiti, which are all inclusive. This was a pleasant surprise to find that the city is so open minded and embraces a new art form. It draws a line between art and vandalism and is educated on this.
