Open Political Forum

Visual Discourse
politicalforum_01_web

In response to tensions caused by the 2016 presidential campaign and election, students in my Foundations of Art and Color Theory classes were directed in the development of a free expression wall to voice their thoughts on the political landscape in America. This forum was open not just to students, but all members of the Barton College community to profess their feelings on issues facing the nation. A cart stocked with various art supplies was present at the site so visitors could write, draw, paint and add other art mediums to the wall. These images represent what was an ongoing visual conversation. One where participants debated one another by making point and counterpoint through artistic media. This experiment in self-expression continued through the end of fall term 2016.
