Long ago, there was once a old brick house in the mid west the ones who have come across it have been fascinated by it because it is still standing in this present day. One thing that's just as fascinating as the house is the man who lives in it. Chris Duval, is a 36 year old man who used to be in the Army. Chris stands at 6'6 he was one of the tallest in the army and kept himself in great physical condition due to the vigorous workouts that came with joining the army training. Chris was only 24 when he left for the army and he met a woman by the name of Stacy Cavali. Stacy was a slim petite woman standing at 5'4 with long brunette hair and a smile that could light up a whole room. Well she was about 5'2 1/2 if you minus the boots she had on. As soon as Chris laid his baby blue eyes on Stacy it was love at first sight. Chris immediately engaged in conversation with Stacy and learned that she was Spanish and a single mother and served in the army force as well. Once they found something they both loved and were interested in it sparked up a relationship. The two kept in contact with one another for a long period of time by letters and phone calls, but due to their busy line of work they could not see each other as often as they would like to. The letters that the two wrote one another were a constant reminder that they were never alone and were still strongly in love. Until one day Stacy's letters just stopped coming. Chris questioned himself in his head "Why has Stacy stopped writing me?" These thoughts would come through his mind day after day. While Stacy's sudden disappearance was troubling him he had to keep focus because he was in the army and you have to keep focus on the task at hand, defending the United States of America. About 2 months later Chris was caught in a gun battle at which he had lost his left leg as a result. While recovering in the hospital Chris friend gives him letter. The letter was old, torn up and from the look of things it was already open. As Mohammad hands Chris the envelope, Chris asks, "What is wrong Mohammad?" as he sees Mohammad's eyes swell with tears. Mohammad carefully gives Chris the envelope and leaves the room. The person who sent the letter name was Tammy Cavali, Stacy’s younger sister. As Chris sees the last name Cavali he realizes that this letter is related to Stacy. He reads the letter over and over again in disbelief as tears come to his eyes and he breaks out into a frantic scream as he learns that Stacy was killed in crossfire about 2 months
Most would think that in a district like MSAD6, athletics would overrule arts. But,
when all the math is done, arts gets funded more than sports. The athletics have a
higher budget but theres a substantial amount of athletes in our school. The arts
activities program gets way less money from the school then the athletics do but, since
they have a very small amount of people their budget is higher per person.
Although the athletics gets more money over all, the actually teams only receive…
Art as unity
With no boundaries or guidelines to be followed, art can be whatever one would want it to be. The lack of principals opens the door for all variations of people to place their opinion on each piece, the piece being the one thing that brings them together. Although one view may be different than the next, the single piece of art could be considered the constant in the relationship. I have found this to be true in my own life and also in the story of Rothko Eggs.
primarily written to show the realistic portrayal of the Holocaust but more so Art can continue to understand his father’s experiences in the Holocaust. Art goes on his own journey to better understand his identity as a Jewish man and a second-generation Holocaust survivor. ‘Maus’ is a good representation of how the Holocaust tragically affects people who were involved in the disastrous event, and even people who weren’t. Art Spiegelman’s graphic novel does use imagery, narrative structure, metaphors…
for similar reasons that Art Spiegelman chose to render his family’s unfortunate history in a set of graphic novels. Each graphic novel is not simply a cut-and-dry retelling of his father’s past; there are also later experiences in Spiegelman’s life that he directly equates to his father’s past. Each the experiences and memories that Spiegelman discusses throughout is narrated by another character, making it seem as though it is easier for him to delve deeper into his story by being seemingly detached…

Spiegelman’s genius There is not one bad piece of literature work by Art Spiegelman. Almost everything he wrote is considerd a classic. MAUS: a survivors tale is all about the holacosut. It is a extremely complex

The Compare of Two Art Forms --
Video Game and Movie
What kind of art can compare with movies? Maybe the best answer is video games. Times are changing; video games became a kind of art nowadays. Playing video games or computer games became a universal way and a kind of fashion to kill time. However, may people doubt that computer games or video games became a kind of art. In fact, comparing with the movie, they share many similarities.
One important similarity is the original stage of them. When…
Duggan, Jennifer. “China’s environmental woes inspires art.” The Guardian. Friday 15 August 2014. Web. 28 January 2015.

Duggan’s article demonstrates powerfully on how the artist Cai Guoqiang interpret his understanding of the environmental issue in China. The article also mentioned that the beauty of ancient China. The article is really helpful to the exhibition…
DB 1 - Understanding and Evaluating the Arts
The first type of artwork I found was Graffiti. Graffiti art started 60's, and it has been increasing since that time. However, as I stated earlier, it is not considered as art, as those artworks you might find in a museum or and art gallery. Some say graffiti has a lack of usage, meaning it serves no purpose (Stowers, 1997). Many oppose graffiti art because of its location and its audacious, unforeseen, and eccentric exhibition…
The Paradox of Lies That Helps People See The Truth
Art is the original expression of the unknown. In other words as professor Krebs put it “Art is a persons creative interpretation of reality.” Artist manipulate reality through various tools such as hammers, mirrors, bodies, voices, stencils and brushes to name a few. However, all art as Pablo Picasso stated, “…is a lie that helps us see the truth more clearly.” An art form that exposes some of the truths of this world is theater. Through theater…
Existential and Expressive Arts Therapy
November 30, 2008
Sometime in the late eighties, Shaun McNiff, Sr. Kathleen Burke and I sat in a small pub in Cleveland, Ohio. It was after midnight when conversation turned to my writing project, this book. Sr. Kathleen asked, “What’s the title going to be?”
“Well,” I replied, “the working title is Existential Art Therapy.”
Shaun sighed. “Bruce, don’t be redundant. All art is existential.”
