This unit is part of the curricular materials developed to accompany the exhibition Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives. It is based on works in the first section of the exhibition called Art and Transformation. In this gallery works are introduced that play a critical role in facilitating transformations.
This unit contains an introductory statement, along with some provocative “Questions for Thought,” and suggestions that will inspire the students to relate the unit to their own lives.
