Alex Wen Mrs. Baker English 10 8 December 2015 Demand for Change When one mentions about urban environmental artists one of the first names that come to mind, especially in Detroit, is Tyree Guyton.

Though most of his artwork is used to create a colorful view for all to see, his painting, Rosa Parks, Heidelberg Fragment, has an unprecedented tone. It is simple, yet unforgettable.

Cooper expresses this throughout every single piece, even if it a small detail. The reason I choose Jess Riva Cooper is because of her amazing work experience. Not only was this shown by her knowledge of ceramics, but also her ability to make the clay to something looking very realistic as a human form. Also, the painting really drawn me in her simple modern details is what really inspires me to be an artist like her one day. Throughout my research I have learned a lot about Jess Riva Cooper.

My opinion of Wendell Castle is that he was a great and inspiring artists through his very own unique creations.
