When I began looking at the issues involved with social restoration I
had a general idea through studying the work of both Rick Lowe and Ann
Hamilton. Since then I have focused more on the project directed by
Rick Lowe. In an age when it seems as though the community is taking a
back seat to technology, it was refreshing that even the businesses in
the community pitched in materials, time, and money. In my
multicultural class today, I also have come to understand the importance
that collaboration has in bringing people together.
The connections with the past are also important since it takes us back
to our roots, and our own upbringings. Many children are now being
raised in day care, because parents need to working in order to "give
them a better life".
I really like the idea that art can work to help resolve the issues
that are affecting us today. Does anyone agree with me, or what do you
think about these ideas?
