Murals: Public Art with A Message

I created this collection for families to do together while schools are closed. I will be making a collection a day while we are out of school. Today we will be exploring murals. The idea is for families to look at the items in the collection and consider what they see in the objects and paintings, what they think, and what they wonder. Families can watch videos from muralist about their work. As a family you can talk about how these murals tell a story or have a message. What story does it tell? What message does the muralist want to send to the public? What is worth making the subject of mural? Who do muralist make their work for? At the end of the collection I have provided a few ideas for families about what to do next.

World war 2 had a great impact on the world’s economy, countries, and especially the people taking part in the war and not. But people don’t usually realize how much this affected sports during this time. The players would do things that people now would never think a player in a baseball game would ever do. A lot of new societies were formed due to this war, both good and bad.
