As I walked around the art galleries at Long Beach State, I came across this modern artwork created by April Bey.
Our society is based on trends that we see on social media and this art work shows a lot about it. The fact that we enjoy hearing Beyonce’s new album over and over again, but some of us struggle to sit at church on a Sunday morning. The way we talk to each other with lack of respect. The interest we come across with that will not have a significant impact in our futures. At the end of the day, we come to realize that we can be selfish in a certain way. This project makes me realize that I should reconsider my surroundings. To disregard unnecessary remarks given by the negative people and inspires me to find better interest that will help me strive for a successful future.
