This was the start of the Quilting Bee. The beginning of this gala was inaugurated due to their settlement in the Great Plains, which had made this activity a lot more practical considering the separation from the world and wide open spaces they were living in. The settlement for their social gatherings was established and the aforementioned activity would take up large portions of their day. Sometimes they would even spend an entire day working on quilting their thick blankets. One of the many matters of the Quilting Bee was to aide other women by donating quilts for others’ hope chests (Johnson).
In the Documentary of Frida Kahlo published by PBS America on October 26th,2012 there were many Pros and some Cons I noticed. Some Pros I noticed was that their were many pictures of her artwork and I really liked that because her artwork was amazing the way she drew was really detailed, my favorite drawing they showed was the one she drew when she had unfortunately lost her baby. Just the way she detailed her drawing, you can connect to the way she felt and the things that were going on her mind during that time, that’s how deep her artwork was. Also something else I liked was Frida Kahlo 's personality the way the narrator described her was really persuaded and admiring, because just the way she went through an unexpected tragedy she stayed positive about it the whole time, and her love life with Diego Rivera seem so passionate well except the times when he was cheating on her, but even when he did Frida Kahlo 's respond to it was so strong, she will make him beg her for forgiveness and she’ll go days without talking to him. And honestly as a lady 's point of view, it’s really hard to ignore your love one but at the same time they did you wrong so you know it’s like disrespectful and unfaithful in a relationship which later on leads to trust issues.
As an accomplished photographer, Dorothea Lange had her pick of subject matter, particularly as she became more widely recognized for her talent. While teaching photography at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, Lange had her class challenge her to her own assignment of taking photos as part of "where do I live?" Lange submitted a portrait of her own polio twisted foot and the explanation that she felt she was imprisoned by her own imperfect body. Having learned at an early age that beauty was not always about perfection and that strength of character was often more beautiful when framed well, Lange sought to find this beauty with her photography. She traveled extensively and had many assignments behind the camera, but one

Betsey Johnson was born on August 10, 1942, Wethersfield, Conneticut. She had two great passions for dance and art when she was growing up. This led her to pursue her interests in art and design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, which then she later transferred to Syracruse University. After graduating college, she dove into the fashion industry and got a job in the Madammoiselle magazine art department but soon later became an independent fashion designer. Part of Johnson 's success was her abililty to sense the social and subsequent style and sillouette changes.
One great notion I have developed over the years is that every human has gone through some meaning experiences in his/her life that he/ she can identify with when such experience is depicted through an artwork, painting, photography, or any form of media. After coming in contact with Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother, 1936, artwork (fig 4.151), I feel more connected to this artwork because it speaks directly to me and draws my attention to my personal life experience. This artwork is more of Leo Tolstoy’s definition of art that views art from a social prospective. Lange’s Migrant Mother artwork shows a mother’s strength and determination in the time of extreme need. Observing this artwork, we can conclude that the there’s always a strong, natural
