The defending of the arts
Recently my family went to an art gallery that had some, many different forms of art that made it so interesting. To view, many of them had much meaning, with a lot of history and culture in the mix within it. Some of the local artists came around, mingle, with the crowd, and explain their art in a more in-depth ways.
An art gallery that I went to is in the location of ells square in the city market of Georgia that has a beautiful art gallery with amazing art forms. However, the art piece that stood out to me was from Irene Sainz Mayo the painting call on the lake to the composition elements description. Like the line element on the lake, two painting is curved lines, which the tree line gives off the image within the sky.
Drift off towards, the sides of the canvas and the curve line show in the length within the tree line and beyond. The colors united, in the painting. Is the sky is mix with dark and light blue.

Defending Democracy

...Defining Democracy The word democracy is from the Greek word Demos. The meaning is “the people”. In democracy the people vote on the legislation. The property owners (men) were the ones that were allowed to vote. on legislation. This meant the women and children were not allowed to vote. I really do not understand why a woman was not allowed to vote on legislation. Were women not citizens too? Unless a person has a criminal record or mentally unfit then he or she should be able to vote on the legislation as long as they are citizens. Why are the guidelines so strong. If a person is of sound mind and an American citizen he or she should be able to vote on anything. The ones that are voting on everything from gay rights to congressional raises are where they are today because we put them there and they need to remember this. It seems like when they get up on the pedestal where they have placed themselves they forget about us the little person. I think that everything should be voted on by the people and not just a hand full that seem to have their best interest at heart and not ours. The people should be allowed to vote on things like health care reform, pay freezes and cuts, and pay raises for congress etc. The trouble with things in the past and today is everyone is looking out for themselves and does not give a thought to others. I especially think the next time our government gives millions of dollars to big businesses we should have a vote in it, after all that is......

Defending the Use of Tax Credits for Historical Preservation

...Defending the Use of Tax Credits for Historical Preservation Historical establishments serve as reminders of the past to help people understand where they came from and to understand where they are headed. People feel more connected to a community when they can see visual reminders of a community’s evolution. One way in which to promote the maintenance and improvement of historical establishments is to offer benefits, such as Tax Credits, to property stakeholders. Keeping and renewing these Tax credits is vital to the future of historical preservation in our cities, states and country. Tax credits for historical preservation help create jobs, improve local economies through higher household income, are good for local communities, and are good for the environment. Some people would argue against Tax credits because they believe they hurt industries not related to historical preservation and is too much of a burden on tax payers. The biggest benefit to supporting historical preservation tax credits is in the number of jobs it creates. Historic preservation is more labor intensive than new construction, and is proven to create more and better-paying jobs. Since 1978 the investment in federally supported tax credits has created approximately 2.35 Million jobs which include 121.25 billion in Gross Domestic Products. These jobs were mostly created in the construction sector but also created jobs that impacted the service, manufacturing and retail trade sectors...

Art Appreciation: Renaissance Art

...-dimensional forms set within a rationally organized space using linear perspective. If we look at figure 12-7, we see the lifelike images of Mary, Joseph adoring the newborn Jesus with a host of angels and shepherds. One of the major differences from the northern art is the sympathetic expressions on the faces of the on lookers. Fig. 12-7 During this time in the Renaissance era, southern Europe rebirths the nude in the artworks as was a normal in early Greek art. Figure 13-11 below, Michelangelo’s “David”, the figure embodies the antique ideal of the athletic male, the facial expression on the other hand is a stark difference from the earlier arts showing emotional power and a concentrated glaze. Looking at figure 13-12, “The Creation of Adam”, Michelangelo captures the instance when god tasks him with the spark of life. The facial expressions and the body interaction are extremely evolved from the earlier Greek works and exhibits a more humanistic appearance. Figure 13-10, “Interior, Sistine Chapel”, Michelangelo painted images depicting the sincere empathetic expressions so well known to the Italian Classicism of Southern Europe. Fig. 13-9 Fig. 13-12 Fig. 13-10 The relationship between the artist and patron appears to have......

Defending Dos Attack

...For years security folks have grumbled about the role compliance has assumed in driving investment and resource allocation in security. It has become all about mandates and regulatory oversight driving a focus on protection, ostensibly to prevent data breaches. We have spent years in the proverbial wilderness, focused entirely on the “C” (Confidentiality) and “I” (Integrity) aspects of the CIA triad, largely neglecting “A” (Availability). Given how many breaches we still see every week, this approach hasn’t worked out too well. Regulators pretty much only care whether data leaks out. They don’t care about the availability of systems – data can’t leak if the system is down, right? Without a clear compliance-driven mandate to address availability (due to security exposure), many customers haven’t done and won’t do anything to address availability. Of course attackers know this, so they have adapted their tactics to fill the vacuum created by compliance spending. They increasingly leverage availability-impacting attacks to both cause downtime (costing site owners money) and mask other kinds of attacks. These availability-impacting attacks are better known as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. We focus on forward-looking research at Securosis. So we have started poking around, talking to practitioners about their DoS defense plans, and we have discovered a clear knowledge gap around the Denial of Service attacks in use today and the defenses needed to maintain availability.

...Defending the Arts 1 Defending the Arts 100/Arts 6/16/14 Defending the Arts 2 Me and my wife have always enjoyed the arts and took and opportunity recently to go see the play “Wicked” in Raleigh N.C.. It has always been one of my wives favorite plays so it ended up being what I wanted us to go see. Wicked is a new twist on the classic tale of the Wizard of Oz. It is a play adaptation of Gregory Maguire's book of the same name. In this retelling, the “wicked” witch is actually the heroine of the story, who starts out as the outcast and is coached by Glinda, her big sister. She begins to be popular, which is expressed in a musical number that was one of my wife's favorite songs in the play. However, she realizes her real desire is not to fall in love and pursue the wizard/witch love story, but to be free. During the play the musical numbers played a huge part in telling the story as well as the movements of the characters. With song it was easy to tell what each character was feeling and meaning to express. The songs also cause you to feel similar feelings to the characters. According to ("2knowmyself", 2006-2011) music is the fastest way to create emotion to the audience. Within seconds you can completely change a listener's emotional state  ("2knowmyself", 2006-2011) . During the song “Defying Gravity” two characters, Glinda the good witch and Elfie the wicked witch, are having an argument about following society and...

Defending the One Percent

...The article “Defending the one percent” by N. Gregory Mankiw (Journal of Economics Perspective-volume 3, number 27-Summer 2013-Pages 21-34) is an attempt to analyze some reasons for not having an equal distribution of income, regarding special attention to the one percent of the people with the highest income. This issue has been debated for decades and has kept the attention of many economists. Since this disparity leads to inequality, the role the Government has been subject of analysis in order to stablish the level of involvement and the mechanism to solve the problem via taxation. The paper starts pointing out an example of disruption of a utopic economy where a new entrepreneurial idea has come up. In this case, everyone wants the new product, but there is only one provider; therefore, the demand exceeds the supply and the entrepreneur ended up being richer that the others. This unequal redistribution of well-being started as a voluntary exchange, so there are two questions the author brings up, related to contribution of the entrepreneurial to the alteration of the public policy and whether or not this policy should remain unchanged. This is a reflection of what has been happening in the United States where the income has grown, but not in a uniform way across the income distribution, which leads to the question for policymakers to make taxation more progressive. The second issue in the paper is related to inefficiency as a result of inequality. Taking as example...

Defending the Arts

...Defending the Arts Tiffany O’Connell ARTS/100 Defending the Arts Art refers to the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination typically in a visual form such as painting and producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. They are various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance. The elements of the composition of the art are used to arrange or organize the components in a way that is pleasing to the artist and, hopefully, the viewer. It helps give structure to the layout and the way the subject is presented. It also encourages or leads the viewer's eye to wander around the whole painting, taking in everything and ultimately coming back to rest on the point. These elements are considered to be unit, balance, rhythm, focus, contrast, pattern, color, line among others. Unit refers to when the parts of the composition feel as if they belong together. Balance is the symmetrical arrangement of objects. It creates a sense of calm when symmetrical and a sense of unease and imbalance where it’s not. Rhythm: just like music, a piece of art has rhythm, a piece of art can have a rhythm or underlying beat that leads and paces the eye as you look at it .Repeated color and shapes creates a rhythm in a paint (Rosenberg 2013). Focus refers to emphasis on a particular object. The viewer's eye may want to rest in the most of the things in the painting...

Defending Christian Truth

...Defending Christian truth has been extremely important in church history. As the early church began to expand, Christianity had to compete with a number of ethnic, philosophic, and mysterious religions in the Roman world. False teachings and doctrinal error began to surface inside and outside the church. To put an end to the confusion and restore doctrinal truth, God called a group of men, known as the Apologists, to defend the truth. The Apologists were scholarly men who took on the task of composing a defense and endorsement of Christian truths. Their objective, to dispel falsehoods and misunderstandings, and to point towards Christian truth. False teachings were found inside and outside the church. Examples of heresies in the church include Marcionism, a belief that there was a creator god who was evil and a redeemer god who was good. Ebionitism taught Jesus was not the second person in the Godhead. Instead, He was the prophetic successor to Moses. Montanism believed in celibacy and prolonged fasting. It also taught obedience to the Holy Spirit through His prophet Montanus and challenged church authority. Gnosticism, Manicheanism and Neoplatonism are examples of heresies outside the church. Gnosticism and Manicheanism are closely related, teaching among other things dualism believing spirit is good, material or physical is evil. God did not create the universe. Neoplatonism is a mystical religion based on the philosophical teachings of Plato. While these...

Defending the Free Market: a Critical Analysis

...Defending the Free Market: Critical Analysis Defending the Free Market written by Rev. Robert Sirico is a book about how being a leftist seems like a very moral and right thing to do for people but in turn is not very economically sound. He talks about how back in his younger days he was a socialist and leftist but in turn with many talks with people and intense fact searching he figured out how the free-market system is the only way to solve many of the world’s problems. ​What I thought was Sirico’s strong points about the book was that he applied religion to a lot of the things he had to say. Usually when someone is talking about economics they try to shy away from including religion into their speech or paper. Also, Sirico was very blunt about what he had to say. He went straight to the point backing his ideas with personal experience and facts. When it comes to Sirico’s weaknesses I could not find anything. He was very direct in what he said and I believe he did not leave anything out. When I first began to read this book I thought that it was going to be a dull strung-out economic lesson as if a robot had written the book. Within the first few pages I was quickly proved wrong when Sirico started to add personal background and experience. He did this throughout the book, which made it actually interesting to read. One of the points Sirico mentioned really caught my eye. In Ch. 4, Want to help the poor? Start a business, he talks about how foreign aid does...

Defending the Arts

...Defending the Arts What is art? Art can mean many things to many people. For me, the arts are an expression of one's imagination, the ability to create so that others can enjoy. There are different kinds of art. Art could come in the form of paintings, sculptor, poetry, music, or theater to name a few. Art makes you feel; it makes you think. . Art in some shape or form has existed as long as humans. Art surrounds our daily lives and is present all around the world. Love and Anguish What do you think of when someone mentions Miami? Beautiful beaches, beautiful people, vibrant nightlife, and fun in the sun. I'm a native of Florida and had no idea Miami is home to one of the most dramatic heartfelt memorial. The memorial is to honor the millions of lives that were lost and to those who survived. The Holocaust Memorial of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation (Miami, FL) is a must to see if you are ever in Miami. There is one particular piece that I will be telling you about that made the most impact on me that day. It is a sculptor designed and created by Kenneth Triester. His memorial art piece is called the Sculpture of Love and Anguish (Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, 1990). You walk upon a bronze sculpture that stands at 42-feet. Its outstretched arm marked with the symbolic numbers from prison camp is reaching towards the sky. It is what you see at the base working its way up the arm to the sky that gets to you. There are life-sized bronze figures placed...

What Makes Art Art

...Britani Graves Art Essay 1 6-20-11 What makes Art Art? I believe art can not be defined. According to the Fall 2007 Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Definition of Art, by Thomas Adajan, "the definition of art is controversial... whether art can be defined has also been a matter of controversy." I think artists can take anything and put their twist on it and what they think it is and they can call it Art. Art is all around us in many forms and fashions. Art has evolved in so many different ways and can make people feel so many different feelings. Everywhere we look today we can see some form of Art and if you really take time to enjoy it and get in touch with your feelings everyone could learn to appreciate things a lot more. Art can be a very therapeutic way to deal with emotions people may not be able to express any other way. In the sculpture The Kiss by Auguste Rodin it is a true example of expressing a feeling of love. In the sculpture they look so passionate and in love it just makes you feel good.  I think any work that touches us on an emotional level – brings us joy or anger, tears or laughter – is art. But there is a cultural aspect to it as well, particularly in how we interpret art. Georgia O’Keeffe says, “I found that I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say in any other way-things I had no words for.” I really think our book Prebles’ Artforms by Patrick Frank says it good when he says, “Not all of us regularly create works...

Defending the Arts

...Defending the Arts Trouble Carter ARTS/100 1-18-2016 Doris Doyon Defending the Arts I recently attended a college Step Show in my community a few months ago. Step Shows showcase multiple teams who stomp, clap, dance, shout, and ignite the audience. I have been viewing Step Shows since my first year in high school. I frequent Step Shows due to the electrifying energy that the step teams display. These teams work hard to perfect their artwork of expression. Some of them even employ professional dancers to assist with the stage shows. Just like painters or sculptors, step teams provide messages and creative expression in every performance. Stepping is a growing art form and an important part of our country’s artistic and cultural heritage. In stepping, the body is used as an instrument. The body motion and movement is part of the story. The step teams maneuver in synchronized progressions to create intricate rhythms through a plethora of footsteps, claps and the spoken word (Degregory PHD, 2015). The winner of the Step Show approached the stage wearing clown outfits including colorful masked faces. The clown outfits mislead the audience to expect a clumsy, unorganized show. We received the exact opposite. The winning step team was well organized and choreographed, regardless of their clown suits. They brought the crowd to their feet with “call and response” chants. Moreover, the Step Show entertained me to the fullest. I enjoyed every team’s performance. I get...

Defending the Defenseless

...1   Defending the Defenseless During the American Revolution, slavery was in the process of being abolished in Europe and in the Northern states of America. Even though parts of the world were willing to free slaves, the Southern states found ways to defend slavery. In Paul Finkelman’s book Defending Slavery: Proslavery Thought in the Old South, Finkelman provides the writings of many white leaders from the South who believed that slavery was essential to America’s society. The white leaders who spoke about proslavery included a broad range of defenses to justify themselves because they wanted Americans to believe that slavery had a lasting impact economically, religiously, legally, and racially. One of the defenders in Finkelman’s book was Thomas R.R. Cobb. He justified slavery by arguing the effects of abolition in the United States. Cobb said, “The emancipated negroes do not enjoy full and equal civil and political rights in any State in the union, except the State of Vermont” (Finkelman, 79). He was convinced that those who became free of slavery did not live a better life. He believed that any African American slave who is free is not capable of living successfully and “His moral condition compares unfavorably with that of the slave of the South” (Finkleman, 79). This argument states that African Americans who are enslaved are in better hands with the slave owners and therefore they should remain as slaves. Cobb’s defense was justifiable because...

...Art t history According to Becker, art can be generators of identity for a specific community. In his maiden speed to NDMOA, Becker notes that historically, art has been used to give a specific sociocultural direction within a community. As Haley, notes, Becker is a renowned expert in the field of art, his personal reflection of the role of art in humanizing cities lies in the human interactions with art is such cities. The use of art to capture day to day undertakings within a city is a classic example of how art humanizes cities. Becker uses that typical example of social media and use of pictures to capture existing moment with artistic expression especially sculptures in large cities (Haley, 2014). This is a form of humanizing that art brings to cities. As people interact more with art in cities, the length of interaction will automatically translate into a sense of connection thus giving human qualities to these works of art. This is therefore what Becker refers to humanizing of cities by art. Art can indeed be a generator of identity for a given community. As Becker notes, art is a presentation of social and cultural alignments within a culture. The depiction of these ideas through artistic expression, therefore, serves as a form of bringing out the identity of respective communities.
