On the midterm test this semester one student identified an artwork as
having been done by Vincent San Dough a Post-depressionist.

Last year I took all of my students to see the Picasso show at the *High*
Museum in Atlanta. *Goober* has many meanings in the rural south- a
peanut, a hick, male genitalia, etc. I use the "Story of Painting" series
by Sister Wendy Becket in the beginning class. The students have made a
game of identifying the images at the beginning of each part of the series.
As a extra credit on the final last year I showed that part of one of the
videos and asked that at least 6 of the artworks be identified. A student
identified the Guggenhiem as the "Goober High".
