The Essential "Isness" Of Things

My name is Haylee. I'm a 23-year-old recent college grad about to go back for more and I'm documenting my whims symbolically through puppy pictures, 90's Nickelodeon gifs or a photo set of Stevie Nicks. I usually write stuff. We can talk about that.

Andy Warhol’s Race Riot depicts events of May 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama when police commissioner Bull Connor employed attack dogs and fire hoses to disperse civil rights demonstrators led by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. The traditional roles of the artist- to help us see the world in new or innovative ways; to make a visual record of the people, places, and events of their time and place; to make functional objects and structures more pleasurable and elevate them or imbue them with meaning; and to give from to the immaterial, hidden, or universal truths, spiritual forces, or personal feelings- are all part of a more general creative impulse that leads, ultimately, to the work of art.
