    Dear Jessica,
    I like your box a lot because its very descriptive. A sentence you wrote that stood out to me is “I’ve chosen to include inspirational women quotes with a garden of flowers around them because we women are usually looked down on as “dependent” and “weak” when in reality we try our best to prove all those who doubt us wrong” this…[Read more]

    Dear Juan,
    I like your artist statement a lot because you put in very detail what you have in your box. Also what you said about the color red, I agree that it’s not just a “gang color” it can be more than that. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was that people make assumptions just because your Mexican. That your not gonna…[Read more]

    • Dear Tania,
      I am delighted by your shadow box because I can see that you put so much effort in making it looking nice with details. One part of your shadow box that stands out to me is the mexican money because you are showing an item of where you are from to represent one of your identities.I also liked how you included pictures of you and your family in your shadow box to show who you are as a person. Thank you for your shadowbox/art and I look forward to seeing what you create next time because your work is very interesting.

    • Dear Tania,

      Your shadow box is really beautiful. I like how you incorporated many pictures and objects to express your counter narratives. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “On the outside I had also put red paper to represent how society thinks we are part of a gang” That sentence stood out to me because it is good to break down those stereotypes that people have on Hispanics. Another sentence that stood out to me was, “Also, the images show that I am female and strong and independent.” You as a young latina female it is very important to keep in mind that you can overcome all the bad things you may go through. Overall, you did really good work!


  • Dear Grady,
    I am loving your shadow box because of the things you use inside of your box. Like for example the swan, you say that it represents you because there are people who oppress you but you still stay strong. That’s a really great way to show your strength. Another thing I really like about your shadow box is that you show your friends. I a…[Read more]
