“My art contradicts the importance of being equal. What is the importance of being equal? The importance of being equal is that we all can see through one eye if we stand together which is saying no matter the color we should all stand strong with each other no matter the situation.”
ARTIST BIO: Robert Morris is a Grade 10 student at Princeton High School.
PROJECT: Photography students were challenged by art teacher Lindsey Holliday to create imagery based on their own personal passion or connection to themes of Peace and Social Justice in regards to Equality and Equity. Students viewed and discussed the Equality/ Equity Illustration, Bisa Butler’s The Safety Patrol quilt, Shepard Fairey’s American Rage poster, and Frank Willis Thomas’ Branded photograph. They also viewed the series published by Amplifier Art, 12 Conversations Seek Common Ground. Students were encouraged to develop their ideas in a plan and create their artwork using media and techniques of their choice.
