Throughout this course, all of the art we have explored was based on a specific culture in a specific location and during a specific period of time. While it was interesting to see the artistic growth coincide with cultural growth and the achievements that came from both, I always felt that the early works of art best symbolized the cultures who created them. Aborigine art appears to serve a purpose within their specific culture group, with each group having distinct styles that seldom changed. While one would think it would be easy to understand a culture that has barely changed in 40,000, it was quite the opposite. Because of their ritual initiations and secret ceremonies, it seems as though one must be a part of the Aborigine family unit to fully understand the culture they possess. Crocodile Dundee was one lucky man.

- Amazing Grace As part of the summer reading assignment this year, I read the book Amazing Grace by Jonathan Kozol. In this documentary-style book, he told about the horrible yet completely realistic conditions of the most poor, rundown neighborhoods and districts in New York City. Kozol wrote the book for the purpose of telling the stories of the children who lived in these parts of the city. He dedicated his work to those children and it was his goal to inform readers that slums were in fact in existence and the children who resided there did not deserve to live in such a poverty-stricken area.
