Chloe Ledford 5.05 Snapshot “Darkytown Rebellion” Funky (Focus): This work is experienced and viewed through interaction with and movement through the piece. The focus of the work itself are the silhouettes cut to create figures within the color; through the casting of a colored projection onto the wall, an emphasis is placed on the dark figures. The shape of Darkytown Rebellion creates a story with how it is viewed with a meaning behind each character as well as the overall scene of a rebellion as well as the history of African-American culture. Caravaggio (Content): The art is created by silhouettes on a wall and the projection of light over them to evoke an emotional response to the violent scene depicted. Although silhouettes mask each figure true race and gender, the artist implies the piece is consistent with racial issues and stereotypes seeing as it was created to display the time of slavery in the south, or the antebellum period. Because the scene is so realistic and compares to real world problems, possible themes could be racism.

    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.
