Actions, and answer the following questions:
1. According to Lewis, how can art alter our perception of the world? Lewis argues that the arts have been crucial to social justice efforts throughout American history. How and why has this been the case? Cite specific examples from the video.
2. According to Bell and Desai, what is the point of social justice art? What methods and tools do social justice artists employ? Cite specific examples from the text.
3. For this final question, I would like you to explore examples of social justice art online (begin with a google search for “social justice art” or “environmental justice art” and go from there). Select a piece that altered your perception of the world in some way and discuss it. Why did you select this piece? How did it change your perception? Bell and Desai write that the arts help us “create and experiment with alternative possibilities–imagining what could otherwise be.” How did this piece help you imagine otherwise? Please include a link to the art piece you have selected.
