How are projects in the arts (music, theater, visual art, etc.) evaluated?

Students interested in submitting an exhibition, performance, or work of art, music, theatre, or imaginative literature as an honors project must follow the normal procedures for honors work and must be willing to engage in a discussion of their work. A brief essay—as preface, foreword, introduction, afterword, postscript, or critical review—must accompany any such creative work. The essay should clarify and illuminate the work in a manner appropriate to genre, form, or medium and may include the aims of the project, its formal and stylistic precedents, its techniques, and the limitations and potential of the project. The artistic work and the accompanying written portion will be evaluated equally by the examining committee according to the criteria for honors.. See Projects in the Arts.
