The focus of this week’s class was murals. Murals are a very effective way to get a message out into the open, and make a change in the neighborhood. We began learning about several different murals that advocate for a particular message. They push for change, and are able to make a difference in society simply by being an artistic piece. The murals we studied this week were not only eye catching, but they also made you think. The artists are able to stop people walking by, and get into their heads if only for a few seconds before they continue on with their day. These artists are advocating through artwork which is a powerful way to move a community.
