Traditions Told and Broken: Stories of Family and Community
Keys, Kathleen; Fales, Melanie
Art Education, v60 n5 p25-32 Sep 2007
C. Maxx Stevens, Katy Stone, and Hildur Bjarnadottir create monumental sculptural paintings, installations, and textiles to impart ideas regarding domesticity and nature as well as stories of evolving family or community traditions. Questioning and breaking traditional rules of art in unique ways, their innovative and graceful use of alternative materials and processes also connects their intriguing work. Several creative opportunities for the art classroom are presented through examining these artists' concepts related to family, nature, art, and community. (Contains 2 online resources.)
