The cultural roots of a country are reflected in the arts, literature, and mass media of that society.
Select one form of: visual art, architecture, music, literature, or mass media to use in this assignment. Using one or two examples of this art form, identify the underlying cultural beliefs and values reflected in these works. Discuss the similarities and differences between Canadian works of this type and the European examples you selected. If you happen to be European please choose Canada for this assignment; that is, select one form of Canadian art, literature, or
mass media, etc. In Finland, the composer Jean Sibelious and the architect Alvar Aalto are both
revered figures. Selections from the body of work of these two figures could serve as a
background reference for this assignment.
Required elements are as follows:
1. Introduction (purpose of the paper and how it is structured)
2. Short description of one or two examples of Finnish/German art, architecture, literature, or
mass media along with a similar number of Canadian examples for comparative purposes
3. Discussion of the underlying cultural assumptions, values, norms, and patterns of
behaviour reflected in the chosen art forms
4. Conclusion (What can you conclude about the relationship between culture and art)
