History of Brown vs. Board Through Art :: Race Racial Segregation American History
History Through Art dark-brown vs. Board was a landmark case that changed Americas education forever. rough of these changes produced many opinions among the different states. One county even shut their public schools down for five years and posted signs blaming it on the Government. I am shocked that cast wasnt in the exhibition at the Krannert Art Museum. Many of the featured artists have found their calling in capturing some aspects of the racial issue particularly the equal education facet. The forms of moving-picture show and photography will remain in our world for many years and will help educate future generations on how those in our time coped with the feelings that racism brought to many of us.The exhibit in the museum stimulated my curiosity in the social realm of the decision in that courtroom. People began to limit their futures differently. One painting that struck me as inspirational was Brett Cook-Dizneys self-portrait. The colors he used were mainly bright. This usage of bright tones forced me to think round the reason he used them. Brett Cook-Dizney arranged the colors around his figure in such a way that the tones jut outmed to give the portrait a glow. He had many achievements that surrounded his painting that caused me to figure out why he used those bright colors he was a bright young man. The painting had taken him three years to portray his feelings through his artistic approach. He had graduated high school in 1986, thirty years after Brown vs. Board. His work showed that there were still issues in racial equality in the school. Cook- Dizneys self-portrait seemed to be a way to show the world how he cherished to be seen as opposed to how his teachers and peers saw him. In art he could paint himself in his true light.Cook-Dizney noticed that he had a shot at a bright future and owed much of it to the decision of Brown vs. Board. This court result offered him a chance to pursue a better education. You can see this in his work. He took his own critical approach to his self-image and made the viewer see him his way. This is an effective action for even the amateur art appreciator. After aspect at this painting for a few minutes, you can feel the way he feels about the person he is and hopes to be. Brett Cook-Dizney had a couple more note-worthy paintings on display.
