Constructive Criticism

When I went to this exhibit, I did not realize that all the pieces were done by local youth. It was a great opportunity for them to benefit from this exhibit. I was amazing by how talented the youth around here is! I chose the piece Chango Divine. This piece of artwork really stood out to me because of the issues their are in Minneapolis. It showed a dark and dreary skyline of Minneapolis. It appeared to show the crime and violence that occurs at night. While on the other hand their were doves above the skyline with a hand reaching out to the word love. It seemed to show the difference between many people in Minneapolis. You have those who cause these crimes and the dark things of Minneapolis, while you also see there is a good side of Minneapolis and that people do care about the world!
