For the first week of class i interviewed Sarra Beauzil. This is Sarra second year attending CSU Long Beach. Sarra and I are both Child development Major. not only do we share this art class together but also a child development course. She wants to brome a social worker when she finishes with school.
The piece of art we found interesting was by an artist from CSU Northridge. The title of this art was “Who do you Worship?” This piece of art included 4 photos of different celebrities. Sara felt like the image of Miley Cyrus had her attention more than others! The photo had a caption with ” keep calm and glorify trash”, with Miley’s picture in the background. Sarra says Miley has undergone a huge change in her persona but still maintains her millions of fans. I felt that Beyonce photo was more interesting. Beyonce is a woman that every person dreams to be like, from her life to relationship!
We both found interest in the pieces because we felt these were the ones we knew most about.It was as if the artist was saying we worship these celebrities for good and bad reasons. We worship Beyonce because of her beauty and what she has going for herself. Children and women dream of becoming just as success has her when they get order. We worship Miley because she has really changed. She is now known for smoking and dressing very “ratchet.” People still continue to worship her for all she’s done. People still love to listen to her music and attend her concerts.
For most of the pieces we thought we knew what the meaning was for it, but it was really the total opposite. Reading the titles of the art made the pictures a little confusing, other then that I found some interesting artwork in the GLAMFA museum.
