ART AND SOCIETY 2 Art and Society Art has always had its place in society. Either to show the world how things looked from other perspectives or to bring humor and color to what some might have thought was a dreary and colorless place. Art preserves our perspective on the world at any particular time. Older art carries a more accurate perception of what things were like than modern art. Some actually say art is short for artifact in some cases I would agree because without the art of the past we might not know some of the things we know. William Weege is a political artist, known for his surreal, anti-war poster collages of one of the 60's and is one of the most important political artists from that era. Although he is not very well known, In the late 60's his posters hit the streets of San Francisco and his career pinnacled in 1970 and 1971. Weege celebrates the sexuality and liberation of women in some of his pieces. Contextually however these images were produced as they were made in the midst of a movement as what we now call the sexual revolution in the 1970s. Victor Moscoso was the first of the rock poster artists with academic training. Moscoso's style is most notable for its visual intensity, which is obtained by manipulating form and color to create optical effects. Moscoso's use of intense color contrasts and vibrating edges. Moscoso became one of the most famous of the psychedelic artists to surface during the mid-'60s, due to his provocative work. This is a video that Moscoso animated himself.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
