The Task

Your client makes a habit of spending her money wisely and has therefore approached several different firms with this task. Select three artworks: one that reflects the Northwest Coast navtives' religious beliefs; one that communicates social status; and one that is functional. Prepare a presentation that will persuade your client to contract with your brokerage firm. Include the following in your presentation:

  1. A brief history of the people and art from the region
  2. A map of the Northwest Coast region indicating where the main tribes live
  3. A chart showing how the artists used the elements of art
  4. A spreadsheet indicating pricing trends and how your art selections compare
