The Graffiti Debate was a challenging discussion for me. Some of the objects I found, I did not believe were pieces of art. The 2009 Graffiti Mural Project used a lot of color with the musical instruments and the people. I think it is incredible. Lee Quinones seems to do pretty dark matter for his murals, but some of his other artwork, is not so dark. I agree that our instructor got us to think on a different level with some questions we might not have thought about. I agree with you that the best way to understand a person or their culture is by visual things they left behind for us to find. Have a great holiday,
Assignment Four – The Family Group by Charles Umlauf Charles Umlauf created The Family Group sculpture in 1960. The location of the sculpture is outside of the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. Its green color distinguishes the sculpture from the many other sculptures around the university and from the background of the business school. Much of the evidence in the paper will come from the structure and form of the sculpture. The sculpture depicts the wife leaning on the husband showing a traditional family structure.
Based on the mural image "Going to the Olympics" by Frank Romero 's he was paid to create a work of art in the Los Angles free way. In my opinion I think its a work of art because this is a mural image and the time it and pride it took makes it a work of art. The time and the paint it must have taken to make this image its very impressive. I can see the culture and creativity they are trying to show. They graffiti in LA show what Los Angeles is all about and based on my personal experience each time I go to LA
The first piece of artwork I critiqued was the famous Virgin of Guadalupe. The Virgin of Guadalupe is currently exhibited in the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City. The piece of art is not solely a painting, but an enconchado. It was made into wood, and it essentially creates a reflective surface that appears as moving. Also, I like how they explain their theory on the woman of the apocalypse and how it relates to this piece of art.
Have you ever had that weird situation where you needed to sign something but you didn't know cursive, because it was not taught in your school? Cursive really should be taught in schools, but only to a certain degree. Kids should be taught to read cursive and to write their name in cursive, but not how to completely write in cursive. Cursive is faster and neater than normal printing.
One of the most-awaited moments of the year is right here once again. Dim neighborhoods are brightened by ghastly smiles of Jack-o '-lanterns in communities where the breeze is also slowly getting colder and the leaves that have fallen off of pines give each step a crunch. In a few days, children dressed like pirates, princesses, ghouls, and little monsters will be knocking on doors requesting goodies and several other goodies. Yet just before Halloween begins, you can delight the kids in your community by teaming up with several moms and dads and arranging a Halloween scavenger quest.
Underage Tattooing Underage tattooing is an increasing problem all over the world. As well as it being a luxury for teenagers, it is also a shared commonality that includes almost 75% of the world population, or simply just friends and family. Yet, as adults who have been through the - no longer - popular trend of tattoos in the early nineties, teenagers are bringing back the huge craze along with its dangers and consequences. We need to know that fashions from the past could possibly be in the past because of horrible outcomes in the end.
With 1 in 5 (19%) Australians possessing at least one tattoo, why is having ink in the workforce still such a controversial topic? Whether it be a cute little butterfly on your hand, your mother's name, or even a full arm sleeve, should your personal expressions really deem your employment status? Numerous employers are claiming that visible tattoos are unprofessional and off-putting to clientele, and admit that they would not hire someone with visible body art. Surely such discrimination would not be tolerated this day in age, yet it continues to happen every day.
Gang violence is a growing problem in this world. No parent would like to imagine their kids dealing with weapons or being threatened by them. These violence’s affects each child individually and their families as well. These gangs recruit multiple different individuals for many reasons such as bribery, family traditions, or even threatening. Although, many kids feel like they have to be a part of it but there are many resources out in this world to prevent them from believing so.
The Oakland Museum of California is a remarkable place to experience art in a museum for the first. It is a small museum but, it has so much to offer. It includes an Art gallery, History gallery and a Natural Science gallery. Walking up to the entrance of the museum, I noticed the museum is small but it had a sense of space surrounding it. The exterior had little decorations and the building has a simple but very geometric shape.
The practice of modifying one’s skin as a means of expression has been active for as long as 5300 years (Haskings-Winner, Collichaw, Kritzer, & Warecki, 2011). However, in modern day societies the stigma against body modification, including tattoos is still prevalent. To understand why people of a North American influence would subject themselves to this potential undermining, one must first uncover what motivates a person to permanently enhance their skin. Primarily, research into the topic, history, traditions, modern meanings, was conducted using printed resources, online databases, and online-published journals. Notes and condensed summaries of said research was used to create survey questions and a general audience was decided.
You think you know, but you don´t. Internet can be a very good thing. But it can also be the most dangerous thing you´ll ever use. Do you really know who the person you´re talking to, is the one he says he is? How do you know you not being fouled by a man in India, trying to steal your credit card information?
