I thought you might like to see an
article about some events that I am co-hosting this
week on campus.
Thanks Pam and congrats for making this happen and
thanks for posting - perfect timing. I am currently in
the midst of a grade 12 unit on stereotypes of women
in art and Gorilla Girls books are being read by my
students. Problem is I have to hide them when my
younger kids come into class. The title of one is
"Bitches, Bimbos, and Ballbreakers" ... a great read
and right on - now the problem is how to keep their
work tame enough for a High School - In the past I
told them crossing the line was ok for portfolios but
not for in school exhibition. Well, they are working
big and taking forever on some pieces and we have our
big spring show - part of me wants to display the work
and the part of me that wants to keep my job wants to
keep it under wraps.
I think I'll keep my job.... and scale down the show.
Anyone else in this situation?
