Abstract/Description

My senior thesis, entitled “Kinship with Art,” is a 30 page magazine spread focusing on the age-old human impulse to create artwork from our Earth, with an emphasis on Native American Arts. Since the very being of human history, people have created objects that were crucial to survive and later on, every culture developed their own artistic style in everything they produced. The texts and illustrations in my project explore the kinship bonds between the Earth, Native Americans, and their artwork. I created the text, photography, and layout using adobe software with InDesign. My magazine contains a series of illustrated articles around themes such as the Historical Background of humans creating art, the Necessity to Art: Spirituality with a Purpose, and a 21st Century Connection along with containing three interviews with Native American Artists in Yosemite National Park. I am completing a double major in Fine Art and Art History. I completed my BFA degree requirements last year, thus this creative research project represents my second Honors senior thesis specification for my Art History degree. My work will be on display from late April to mid-May in the San Marco Gallery at Alemany Library.
