In this journal, you will be reflecting on the readings for Week 7 March 16 Constructing and Deconstructing the Visual Culture of "Race" AND Week 9 March 30 Public Arts
I would like you to think about some of the issues involved in public arts projects such as Maya Lin's Vietnam Veteran's Memorial, Kara Walker's A Subtlety and Dustin Klein's BLM public projections from 2020.
Using at least three of the required readings from week 7 as your historical baseline (on race and visual culture), and referring to these (Lin, Walker, Klein) and at least two other projects from the week 9 list, reflect on the agency and power that public art projects have to open up conversations, create communities, to overcome or heal collective trauma-- especially that related to racist violence.
As in the past, you should structure this as a short essay that is well constructed with paragraphs and correct citation. Your essay should be between 500 and 1500 words in length. If it is on the short side, it still must demonstrate careful reading of the 2 weeks' material listed.
Your essay should be carefully considered and fully cited.
