Summer Engagement: Race in Art
My name is Lauren Tackett and I am going into my junior year at Arizona State University this fall. I have spent my entire life in sunshiney Arizona, growing up in Tucson and moving to Tempe for college. My favorite thing about living in Arizona has to be the beautiful sunsets, especially the ones that we get during the summer months. At ASU, I am working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, with a minor in Justice Studies as well. The way people interact within society intrigues me, and I am curious to how this interaction coincides with the concepts of justice and injustice in society. I would like to further explore these interactions by becoming a social worker or a counselor, through which I can directly help people within the community.
A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words: How African American Artists Saw American in Times of Chaos and Calm
The American art industry harbors many of the same white-washing tendencies as American literature, resulting in skewed representations of the American Story. In this series, I would like to focus on African American artists’ depictions of their experience in American society, and how those pieces have had a direct impact on American culture.
