There is no question that art plays a great role in all societies. Understanding why this is, however, can be a bit difficult and cause many to question what value there is in art and why we dedicate so much time, effort, and money into it. In reality, there is a lot that art gives us, such as connections to other cultures as art has no language. Art also brings people together, as art cannot exist without people to appreciate it. However, the most important reason art is valuable to is because it teaches us about the past and human nature differently than anything else can, allowing people to grow and reflect as humans.
Having the ability and motive to empathize with individuals can create change in society by bringing unity between citizens, accepting those who are different, and to help others learn. Martin Luther King Jr. has dedicated and shown many different ways to find justice between the human beings. Margot from “All Summer in a Day,” by Ray Bradbury was someone who was different and accepted those who were. She wasn’t liked by many people because she was different but she still chose to be kind to those around her who weren’t and set an example of compassion. Montag from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury has shown us many examples of empathy to other characters from the book.
There are many people that have played a part in shaping Monet into the artist people know and love. Without those influences, art today may not have been the same. Monet’s style was not accepted, but that didn’t stop him. He continued to create unpopular masterpieces because it made him happy. Soon he would change the world and inspire future generations for years to come.
The Chicano movement brought unity, nationalism, and cultural pride by addressing social and civil right issues. However, the Chicano social identity that arose in the 1960’s was not inclusive to Chicanas, moreover, it did not acknowledge and encompass the contribution of Central Americans and Asian Mexicans. The Chicano social identity definition needs to be changed to be more inclusive and accommodate all the configurations and diverse expressions of
Although we aren’t dealing with the issue of slavery today, there are a lot of other modern- day issues going on in society where we could use a leader like Tubman. Its people like her that really leave a mark in this world and are not lost in an abyss of all the others. Not because of a huge world war she was a part of, but because she helped put an end to some form of corruption, because she helped. One of the things that really stands out to me when I think of Harriet Tubman though, is that she gave many other people the chance to help society out too. She gave them all the chance to leave a mark on this world.
This is why, many creative photographers have complained of not receiving the needed attention and recognition as is given to artists and architects. But the good news is that, as stated above, things have changed in this direction. Apart from its collection of photographs, the National Gallery of Art is now including photography in its major exhibitions, and bringing photographers together to exhibit their products as well. And according to Fiofiori, efforts have been made by private galleries and cultural institutions like Mydrim, Nimbus, Alliance Française and Goethe Institut to attract collectors by mounting photography exhibitions. Individual photographers have also done the same.

This research was carried out not to only show awareness toward the society but also why people should take art seriously. Often times, we can see lots of people debating whether art is important or not. This happened because the lack of exposure and knowledge that has been taught to them. Art can help to shape the society and affect the society to broaden their view of perspective in life by referring on the artworks because each work of art can give different meanings to life.
The movement reunited stronger than ever because after the Civil War they had support to allow them to fight for their rights with more ease. Women’s role in society changed because during the Civil War women took advantage that without the presence of men they would have to take their roles.

Colors are and show up in our daily lives. Around in Society today, colors give us options to explore and express our creativity around us. In Jonas’s community, Color is strange and difficult to grasp the concept of, simply because no one is used to noticing it around them. When The Giver transmits a memory of color to Jonas, Jonas questions The Giver, “But now that I can see colors, at least sometimes, I was just thinking: what if we could hold up things that were bright red, or bright yellow, and we could chose? Instead of the Sameness” (Lowry 98).

The Mexican-American Civil Rights Movement, all the more generally known as the Chicano Movement or El Movimiento, was one of the numerous developments in the United States that set out to acquire fairness for Mexican-Americans (Herrera). At to start with, the development had a frail begin however inevitably the development picked up energy around the 1960's (Herrera). Mexican-Americans, otherwise called Chicanos, started to
I discovered my love for English throughout my Puente classes. It exposed me to my passion for writing and learning new things. An example of this was when we read “ Borderlands” by Gloria Anzladúa which deals with how we identify ourselves composed of poems and written text.

Never have I taken my culture into consideration, but I would more than likely classify my culture as Latino/Hispanic. For starters, I was born in a lovely place called Chihuahua, Mexico.
