Walking through the Huntsville Art Museum really made the wheels in my head begin to turn. Looking at all the different art work I could not help but wonder what the meaning was to so many of these exhibits. There were multiple pieces that caught my eye, but one in particular was the “Providence Church, Perry County, Alabama”. This photograph was taken by William Chritenberry in 1977. Christenberry was born in Tuscaloosa, AL during 1936, and currently lives in Washington, DC.
Standing in the “boneyard,” the evening sky is turning dark; out guide, Tom is giving us a brief history of the Neon Museum, and the stormy history of Las Vegas, Nevada. Tom says, “Be careful of sharp objects,” as our tour begins. The Museum began in 1996 as a way to rescue the remnants of a bygone era. The Young Electric Sign Company donated its corpses to the boneyard, an outdoor collection of signs that once advertised the grand dames of the Las Vegas hotels. With Sassy Sally’s and Binion’s lighting up the night, I am reminded of a Las Vegas, when it was a road in the desert.
The Toledo Museum of Art was founded due to Toledo’s placement as “the glass city of the United States”. In 1888, Edward Libbey moved his glass company to Toledo. In 1901, Libbey and his wife founded the Toledo Museum of Art, without barring anyone from entering. They would gather works of art as well as “collections of glass” during their travels. The couple would make donations of money and property to the museum, but they encouraged the citizens of Toledo to engage within the museum.
Fefu and her Friends Report Paper Fefu and her friends was written in the year of 1977 by the director and written named, Maria Irene Fornes. The current director, Sally Nystuen Vahle, from the Department of Dance and Theater at University of North Texas read the play and decided to establish the character experience to explore the value of art such as naturalism, gender equality, and friendship. The theater play is set in 1935 at New England where the play takes place at Fefu’s Country house. Therefore, this play was subsequently produced in the black box theater at Radio, Television, and Film building on September 24, 2015. In the beginning of the play, we visualize the growth of the character performance including Fefu, Cindy, Christina, Julia, Emma, Paula, Sue, and Cecilia and how it represent in the play.
When I would ask why, I was told I needed to do something “girly,” like ballet lessons. So, I signed up for ballet lessons which continued until I graduated from high school. I look back at my childhood interests and activities and am amazed at the gender socialization that happened. I clearly believed my mental and physical limitations were a result of my gender. As Langer (2011) so clearly expresses: “it is an undeniable truth that one’s sex at birth – biology – begins a process of socialization resulting in one’s gender – the social role….
In the sixth chapter “Grassroots Indian Activism: The Red Power Movement in Urban Areas” of his book Reimaging Indian Country, Nicolas G. Rosenthal analyzes the influence of national Red Power activism on local American Indian activism and places emphasis on various examples of local Red Power. Rosenthal demonstrates how local and national activism were related in the big network of Red Power activism, especially throughout the 1970s. The comprehension of the connections between the different stages of activism is, according to the author, important for the understanding of how the movement was interpreted and transformed over the years. Events of protests and occupations like Alcatraz and Wounded Knee were important to draw national and
In the book, American Exodus: The Dust Bowl Migration and Okie Culture in California, James N. Gregory attempts to change readers perspective of stereotypes created by artist during the Great Depression, such as those created by John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath and Dorthea Lange’s photograph of the “Migrant Mother”. In his book, Gregory “takes us back to the dust bowl migration” to reveal that there is more to Oklahoman, Arkansan, Texan, and Missourian immigrants than economic hardship. He focuses on regionalism, and an “Okie” subculture that was created due to the high rate of migration to California. Gregory sets out to prove that they also had a mass effect on Californian culture and social patterns. Using extremely efficient primary
It’s about a group of outcasts getting kicked out of town and banished never to return, Harte provides a realistic depiction of the Old West through these events the characters experience. Bret Harte’s literature represents realism because he was part of the movement. He is especially famous for his portrayal of the Old West because he actually lived in California during the time of the Gold Rush. He wrote about people he was actually familiar with which is
I study California Architecture when I volunteer to do an Historic Preservation survey of buildings from 1840 to 1940 for the City and County of Sonoma. We compile many books with historic details. By knowing the history of Architecture and People who contributed to the area we were able to move and save Historic Houses from demolition. We saved and restored a 100 years old cottage and became the Headquarter of the Sonoma Sister City. We had Sister Cities in Chambolle-Mussigny, (France), Kanev in Ukraina, Greve in Chianti in Italy and Pasquaro in Michuacan, Mexico.
“Yes,” my mom responded, a bit confused. We walked down to my bedroom. I scanned the walls full of posters of different bands and video games for the painting my very first girlfriend gave me. I looked at the painting for a moment. It was of two girls and hidden in the girl 's hair were the words ‘love is love’.
