Opening Doors to Cultural Diversity
Vidmar, Lou Ann
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v106 n8 p30-31 Apr 2007
The artwork created by David Hammons titled "The Door," is a glass in wood door that shows the words "Admissions Office" on it in reverse. There is a black shadow image of a person peering in. This powerful statement of inequality reflected the frustration of African-Americans trying to get into colleges and universities during the late 1960s. This article describes Opening Doors to Cultural Diversity, a collaborative high school project inspired by David Hammons' door, which addresses cultural issues through art.
