I am happy to present square number 137, a work created by Fuji, a student in Professor Sharon Sekhon's Honor Class at California State University Fullerton:

Pen, marker on paper, 2018.
Act Up is "...a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in anger and committed to direct action to end the AIDS crisis."  Fuji's square is a wonderful take on the style of well known artist Keith Haring's work. Haring was an artist predominantly active in New York City during the 1980s.  He created pop art and graffitti-like work using graphic outlines of figures against blank backgrounds. Haring created many works in public with his drawings appearing in the NYC subways. His later work often addressed social and political themes, and towards the end of his life, he made work regarding homosexuality and AIDS. He died young due to AIDS-related complications. You can read more about Keith Haring here.

I am very pleased to present square number 136, a work created by Rebekah K., a student in Professor Sharon Sekhon's Honors Class at California State University Fullerton:


Marker and paint on paper, 2018.

Our phones have become an integral part of our lives as they are our main way we communicate with each other and access information across the globe. As Rebekah's work demonstrates here, much of our emotional state is linked to content coming and going from these devices.  We still make a choice what we want to see, read and access.  Sometimes it's a good idea to put your device away for a bit and have a in person face-to-face interaction.  :)
