Diego Rivera fuses the stress of blue-collar workers and the beauty of colors to create a fresco piece that demonstrates America’s center of industry, Detroit. All of the details in the piece, Detroit Industry, have a purpose, down to the colors that are chosen. This artwork of his is admired by many and illustrates a strong message about the flow of the factories and the relationship between technology and manufacturing (Smith). Rivera’s life started out in the year of 1886, in Guanajuato City, located in Central Mexico.
Carmen Calvo is one of the most creative, influential, and eccentric contemporary artists of today's Hispanic culture. With works such as No es lo que parace ("It's not what it looks"), Calvo has certainly earned the right to call herself a true artist. With early influences of Post-Minimalism as well as Pop Art, Calvo has managed to establish her own distinctive identity via the usage of visual language. What makes her work so eccentric is her ability to take one object that generally has very deep associations with history and manipulate it using mixed media, or multiple mediums, to have a completely different meaning. In one of her paintings, for example, there is a boy reading a book.

In the mural,"Going to the Olympics" the painter Frank Romero portrays a wide variety of colors in his painting. The first thing I saw in the painting were most obviously the cars passing by with big hearts over them. This means that the drivers loved their cars maybe and loved to drive around Los Angeles. You can also see palm trees and the ocean behind the cars signifying that they're somewhere around Los Angeles where there is water. As we look up at the sky we can see an iron for some reason, a GoodYear Blimp which is quite common in the city of Los Angeles, a horse, and two men wrestling in the sky.
Las Vegas is where I was born and raised. That doesn’t mean that I just gave up on my Mexican culture. Like many others, I have a culture that is both American and Mexican. My culture has shaped my values, perceptions, and behaviors. The culture of my family, community, and society has made who I am as a person in numerous ways.
Rey “Sylvia Lee” Rivera was a drag queen and an activist who played a role in the gay liberation movement in America during the 60’s and 70’s. She was a part of the Stonewall riot, Gay Activists Alliance (GAA) and formed the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR). During the beginning of the movement she was a part of the vanguard that pushed the movement forward.

Gabriel Orozco, born in Mexico and currently living in Tokyo, is one of the leading artists of his generation. Panning sculpture, drawing, photography and video, much of Orozco’s work often relates to—or is situated in—landscapes and outdoor spaces, (such as the garden hall at the Museum of Modern Art in New York a Sculpture Garden in Washington DC). For this unique and inspiring project, Orozco has challenged himself by stepping into new territory using his artistic background to regenerate and reinterpret an unused
Every culture has its differences, and with these differences, there are also similarities which mix together to make up the image of God’s creation. Authors Martin & Nakayama (20103) succinctly explain that society is referred to as the “melting pot” or “salad society, where each group retains a distinctive flavor but blends together to make up one great society” (p. 329). As our culture in the United States continues to change and form, we begin to see many traditional practices begin to fade after an elapse of a few generations. As we begin to explore all of the information acquired in the “Deep Culture Elements Form,” I will be expounding on a number of topics that were discussed with Frank Salcido. Each topic will cross-examine Salcido’s
These words by poets Aurora and Rosario Morales, Puerto Rican Americans, reveal the struggle of the average Puerto Rican. For example, most islanders do not fully understand who they are or how to present themselves when someone asks, “What is your family’s ancestry like?” or, “Where does Puerto Rico get its unique culture?” These questions spark the idea of a questioning identity. This is because the island of Puerto Rico was formed with the help of many different cultures. Are the people of this island African?
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. Explaining her story of being a Chicana; someone who is Mexican American dealing with the differences of both cultures.
