What do you wish to see happen with this project?
I want to see this exhibition be a totally out-of-this world, crazy, chaotic, organized, colorful, multi-medial display of socialization. It will have sculpture, masks, art, video and performers all bringing it to life. It will make people want to go back in and walk through it again to see all the rooms for the options they didn’t choose. I want this to be something that you can get lost in, and explore for hours. Something that leaves guests saying “WOW!”
What would you like to hear a parent say about this exhibition? How about a Sociology professor?
A parent would say that this is an exhibition that they actually enjoyed, and that they didn’t just come to it to support their kid. They would say that we actually taught them something too. They would say that the loved the idea and the art, and that it’s the best exhibition they’ve ever been to. A Sociology professor would say they can’t believe that a bunch of freshman pulled it off, and that what we’re learning is something that he would teach to his college students.
How do we make sure that we are presenting accurate information to our audience?
We will use what we know about socialization already, and constantly refer back to our resources. Resources being our articles, books, process photos, and sociology assignments we’ve had this year. At the end, we will have a teacher, sociology professor, or knowledgeable student fact-check us. We will be available to answer questions during the exhibition, and explain things more in-depth if need be.
