Mona_Lisa,_by_Leonardo_da_Vinci,_from_C2RMF_retouchedDivisions: Collegiate, Varsity, Junior Varsity, Middle School, Elementary
Competition Type: Individual, 2 preliminary rounds and 1 final round, each consisting of 35 (Collegiate, V, and JV) or 30 (Middle School and Elementary) tossup questions. (50% of the questions in all rounds will be visual-based!)

The development of art and architecture through the centuries has reflected humanity’s aspirations, emotions, and sense of place in the universe. This unique Bee-style competition is sure to be one of the highlights of the Olympiad, as half of the tossup questions will feature visual components. In certain instances, players may be asked to identify paintings, while in other questions, the answerlines may be a particular artist, art movement, country whose art is being featured, or related topics.
Note: The Preliminary Rounds will have 5 questions per round based in part on the works in the Princeton University Art Museum.
The Final Round will have 15 questions based in part on the works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Students are actively encouraged to study these collections in advance of the Olympiad.
