Since time immemorial, art has been an integral tool in influencing a society, pushing forth ideas, expressing the general atmosphere amongst the party’s involved and fighting vices in the society. Art is fundamental in the transformation of any society through its ability to influence opinions and values. Through sound, vision any other form that art may take, communications is enhanced. Visual art, Music and poetry have always been the most used.
Art in general is a form of expression. Individuals use art to express emotions, passion, or make a statement. Society can have an impact on how an artist chooses to express his or her sentiments. The beauty of it all is that interpretation is what makes art so unique. The same piece of art can mean so many different things due to who is looking at it. Just like everything else, art changes with time. There has been different eras in art that have impacted society as we know it.
n reflecting on this week’s readings, I can see the connection between the previous readings on the Harlem Renaissance and the one on Abstract Expressionism, especially as it relates to art being used for social change. Just as our society was moving at a fast pace, so was our art. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how racism, women’s rights and war brought on so many different attitudes and the art of the 20th century represented these different ideas. As it relates to war, many people were concerned about the dangers of democracy, while others emphasized patriotism. In either case, you can see a split between people’s perceptions and beliefs. It’s clear that most of the artist of the 20th century that we discussed were always on the cutting edge toward cultural change. Their shocking and innovative techniques reflected the changing values that represented a forever changing society; and often times their art helped shaped our culture, and at the same time, reflected that culture back on to us. From all the different art movements discussed during this course, this week’s readings represents the changing role they art is beginning to play in the political area. I believe that art plays a vital role in democracy, by creating openness and the freedom of expression. It’s amazing how art, be that it through a painting, literature, sculpting or through music can bring about change. Art really makes an impact on our culture and society, from instilling values or by changing opinions. It seems at the heart of every major change throughout our history, you will find an artist that created that change through his or her works. We form our ideas by seeing,
Throughout human history people used to capture the reality of their time, express their feelings and share their impressions by copying both literally or figurative the mundane. The so-called artists have had different impacts in society all along the centuries. Only a few are currently taught in school, although the

I'm sure artists can agree that art is not something written in stone, it is a matter that is always changing. Looking back at eighteenth century artist and comparing them to artists of today, there are many factors that have changed; from composition and color, to technique and even canvases.
Public funding for artistic endeavor rises much emotion in the supporters and detractors of this notion. While there are logical arguments for the standpoint of having our elected officials determined what is worthy of being classified as public art I stand against this principle for various reasons. The purpose of
The statement of when artists feel issues in strong and personal way, or that they have something to say about the human condition, they can produce powerful, disturbing and intuitive artworks is true because in many situations, art has influence people to make drastic changes. Artists, in some cases have a stronger influence on people rather that someone making a speech as art involves techniques such as colour, the type of medium and the location in which it was painted. The article, ‘Influence of Art on American Society’ and the artist Shepard Fairey correspond with this statement through facts and artworks.
This dissertation is dedicated to all the Artists in the world who believe that the Arts are agents of social development, cooperation, solidarity, and tolerance, even when their lives confront the injustices of the system.
O art, art! Wherefore are you art? What happens if society loses art? Would it fall apart, move on with no feeling, or nothing would happen. This question has bothered and pestered many people over the generations. The debate has even risen to a political stance.
Race and ethnicity In most public spheres, people often relate and interact on the basis of race and ethnicity. Race and ethnicity frequently touch to matters pertaining to a common originality or ancestry and might not be based on biological experimentation. People from different racial and ethnic placements habitually find commonalities
In the past decades there has been a broadened movement towards political and social change throughout the world, in particular the United States. Tensions between those who want to keep the statues quo and those who want political and social change have been on the rise. Some Contemporary artists through their artwork have been trying to help progress or show the political and social progression that has occurred through public imagery. Some of these works produced bring awareness to social and political issues and others may just change the perspective on what is thought about them. This exhibit will be a collection of contemporary artists that produced graffiti and street images that have been highly influential to the public over the past
When there is an argument, there is always a counter-argument. Is it morally right for graphic designers to design something so persuading? In "The Teaching of Art as Social Revolution" by Vincent Lanier,he argues that it is morally right for graphic designers to design anything. To begin with this, it is important to know that fine arts and popular arts like photography, motion pictures, graphic design in advertising, fashion design- are the same and serve the same purpose to the community which is to reflect on the community nowadays, like war, sex, race,drugs,poverty - to the design and the art in social matter and the human development in changing its behaviour, as art is useless without its reflect on the society. Thus the reason why art in education should serve as a social revolution. When art does not follow the social revolution, it simply does not live to serve its purpose or obligations to the society. It is important to know however that art does not teach people on how to behave in a society but merely to "develop new ways of making our society operative and equitable. "It does not mean that art that reflects on our lives is better than those that are not, it 's simply saying that art could have also dealt with some that already deal with social problems. It is very important to know that "...arts are not merely the celebrations of values to which we are already committed...it nevertheless is a great instrument for the achievement of whatever values we do
A lot of people think that art can only go as far as a class in school, but in reality there is art around everyone. Art can be a way of life for some people, and for others it is simply just something they pass every single day. What they
For over two thousand years, various philosophers have questioned the influence of art in our society. They have used abstract reasoning, human emotions, and logic to go beyond this world in the search for answers about arts' existence. For philosophers, art was not viewed for its own beauty, but rather for the question of how art and artists can help make our society more stable for the next generation. Plato, a Greek philosopher who lived during 420-348 B.C. in Athens, and Aristotle, Plato’s student who argued against his beliefs, have no exceptions to the steps they had to take in order to understand the purpose of art and artists. Though these two philosophers made marvelous discoveries about the existence of art, artists, and
