I just read over your e-mail again and I realized I hadn't answered all
your questions...yes, these are nationally recognized contemporary
artists. Don't be embarrassed, I didn't know these names either until
they were brought to my attention. We are just very fortunate to have a
contemporary art museum locally that educates the educators. In fact,
this evening I am going to a Maya Lin opening reception...something I am
pretty excited about.
The video we created is pretty modest and mostly appropriate for MS & HS
students. I would think you could find articles written on these
artists, (some of which I have copies of) and probably good info on the
internet too that could be downloaded.
Hope this helps.
