This collection relates to Part 1: The Visual World in Henry Sayre's book "A World of Art" where he discusses developing a visual literacy and seeing the value in art. This is an example of how to use Google Art Project in your classroom.
In 2005, a couple created a temporary work costing $21 million that was up for only a few weeks. Some complained, some celebrated, but for all who visited the park, they're perceptions were changed forever.
Sayre puts forth that artists have four fundamental roles with Yayoi Kusama employing the first: "helping us to see the world in new and innovative ways."
The second role an artist plays is to "make a visual record of the people, places and events of their time and place."
The third role as an artist, as defined by
Sayre, is to "make functional objects and structures more pleasurable and elevate them or imbue them with meaning."
The final role of an artist is to "give form to the immateral--hidden or universal truths, spiritual forces, personal feelings.
Everything we experience is filtered through history, emotions and customs, prejudices, ect. Art, like Faith Ringgold's work, can help us take a more critical look at the visual world.
