Art and Core Values: Something I consider to be one of my core values is gender equality. This little hallway that featured the artwork featuring the "Guerrilla Girls" really evoked my thoughts and feelings on the subject, especially with a lot of what's going on in the United States currently. I liked the art work in the hall because it was very satirical while still making very valid points. It was subtly political and I could personally appreciate the topics that they were touching on.
Art and the Good Life: Of all the work I saw in the Harn, this one is what seemed to represent the good life best. In the description of the photo, Juan Guzman describes how a woman names Frida spent a lot of time in the hospital in the 1950s but she didn't let that stop her from carrying out her passion as an artist. I think this is a good example of the good life because Frida shows how even something as awful as a spinal injury does not have to keep you from doing what you love. I looked at this symbolically and interpreted that as something to live by; you can't let the bad things in life get in the way of the good things you love.
