6. Article Progress
Today, Jason McDowell, OnMilwaukee's creative director, came in and visited our class. He talked to us about how he writes his articles and how he goes about each one. Jason explained how he started writing articles and how he is still writing them months later. We got to see how he lays out his articles and what he all includes in them. I think this will help me with the layout of my article, which is art controversy in art, and what I all want to include in it.
“Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.” ― Pablo Picasso
As for my research on the article about art controversy I will be writing, I am trying to figure out who I want to interview about certain works of art around Milwaukee. I want to talk to a wide range of people, to see their different opinions and reactions on each piece of art. My teacher suggested to get a brief bio of who each person is so I can show where they’re coming from in their opinion on each of the pieces. I think that would be really helpful for my article and strengthen it overall, I just have to figure out exactly what kind of people I want to talk to. Every art piece has a controversial aspect to it, it just depends on the person if they can see it or not. That is what I want to talk to people about. Besides interviewing people in Milwaukee, I plan on writing about art controversy in general and how it affects the community at large. I personally think this is a very interesting topic to not only write about, but read about. I want to tell people about controversial works of art and how people see them. I think giving them real life comments on pieces may show them a different side of the image/work of art that they never saw or thought about.
