Opening tonight: City Tech students’ work at BHS

Join me tonight from 6-8:00 for a great opportunity to go to the opening of Wonder: First Encounters with Green-Wood, a photography exhibit at Brooklyn Historical Society featuring work by your ADGA classmates! You can read more about this on the City Tech website, the CUNY Events Calendar, and BHS’s website.

If you are interested in attending the opening, please let me know either via email, OpenLab message, or by replying to this post. I can give you directions for you to meet me at BHS or can meet you at City Tech beforehand and we can walk there together. If you’re interested but can’t make it tonight, the exhibit will run through January 15th, so you can go on your own or with some classmates. We’re planning a field trip to BHS this semester, but I don’t know that we’ll have a chance to see the exhibit then.

***If you attend and write a blog post about the show–at least 300 words–you will earn extra credit that can be applied wherever needed in your ENG 1101 grade.***

Field Trip:The Center For Book Arts and The Rubin Museum.

The Center For Book Arts image: Prison Walls Bleed Flowers Rachel Galindo

On September 22, 2014 the whole class went on a field trip  to The Center For Book Arts and The Rubin Museum. Being in The Center For Book Arts, I learned many things about the history of printing. A lot has changed from printing back than and today we don’t use the same objects. However, its still good that we haven’t forgotten its history. It will always be remember that it was so simple like today and that we should be thankful to technology. While, exploring and getting more information about the Center For Book Art I came across one image that stood out to me. The image is a work piece from Rachel Galindo, her drawing was unique and question what the image was about. At first I didn’t know what it meant or had an clue. However, I guessed that perhaps the artist was referring that a human being can be affected by natural. If mother earth is not taken care of later on the future natural will affect us that we can no longer escape.

Hunger, (1980)

In the second field trip to the Rubin Museum we explored the wonders of many art work. However, the piece that stood out the most was an art work called the Hunger. I decided to sketch it because I believe it had a meaning behind it. It’s an image of a man eating or biting a snake meanwhile at the same time the snake is eating its self.I believe the image should how the nation is suffering from hunger. People are hunger and the nation  its self is suffering, I believe the image with the snake represents a cycle that no matter how much food it gets it will remain hunger. In both the field trips I enjoyed many art work however those two stood out the most to me.
