On Behalf of Others

Learners focus on the work of writers, photographers, and artists who document events and people that are unnoticed by others. After examining a photo essay by a New York Times journalist, a suite of images by Dorothea Lange, and the public art installations of JR, class members craft an essay response that presents their beliefs on the responsibilities of artists who work on behalf of others.
