The Unframed Ellis Island project is about bringing alive the memory of Ellis Island, the entry point to America for millions of immigrants.

This is the opportunity to interpret the stories of these people through art

Eleven Spring by Shepard Fairey( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In December of 2006, an unlikely group of nearly 100 street artists from all over the world came together to participate in an art show celebrating Eleven Spring Street, long a premiere destination on the international Street Art map. The New York Times wrote, "One of the best shows of the season flamed past just before Christmas: a weekend long display of graffiti created by artists from around the world at, and in honor of, 11 Spring Street." The methodology was mixed media to the max: Wheat paste, paper, spray paint, house paint, markers, metal objects, found objects… the result was chaotic yet undeniably arresting. Marc and Sara Schiller of the Wooster Collective curated the three-day event, calling the show Wooster on Spring. It featured street art superstars like Shepard Fairey and Swoon as well as emergent talents including JR, Prune, and Doze Green. The result was a potent mix of artists who brought the street inside by re-claiming the walls for themselves, and a tipping point for what has become an international art world phenomenon. The three-day public viewing session was a landmark downtown event that drew crowds in the thousands, with people waiting up to five hours to get inside. With an Introduction by Shepard Fairey, an Afterword by JR, and an essay from Randy Kennedy of The New York Times, [this book] captures an important moment in Street Art's history. All the works that were created for the show were subsequently covered up or destroyed by renovation. [This book] allows these vibrant works to live again, ready for a new generation of admirers to enjoy and celebrate."

The portfolio of Villard de Honnecourt (Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France, MS Fr 19093) : a new critical edition and color facsimile by Carl F Barnes( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new facsimile edition of the Portfolio of the 13th-century Picard artist Villard de Honnecourt is the first printed facsimile in eighteen years and the first ever in color. The thirty-three leaves are reproduced at actual size from color transparencies the same size as the leaves themselves to insure the best possible color reproduction of the drawings. For the first time one can see variations in inks and quill strokes, traces of preliminary drawings, and corrections made by the artist. This study is also the first to give a thorough description of the condition of the leaves, analysis of each drawing in the portfolio individually, and new transcriptions and literal and free translations of the inscriptions. The first chapter covers the history and physical condition of the portfolio, including reassigning "hands" to text found on the leaves. The author analyzes the tools and inks used, Villard's drawing technique and style, and evaluates Villard as an artist-draftsman. Chapter II is devoted to detailed analyses of the leaves, one by one, and their drawings and inscriptions. These analyses are of interest to those concerned with medieval technology and theology as well as to those interested in medieval art and architecture. Chapter III is a new biography of Villard that challenges the many wild speculations of the last century and a half about Villard, separating obvious fiction from possible fact. Barnes analyzes in detail Villard's drawings of different Gothic buildings and makes a case for Villard having been a lay representative of the cathedral chapter at Cambrai, one of the buildings Villard drew. An up-to-date bibliography of Villard studies and a glossary of Villard's technical and artistic terms completes this important new study

Maya identities and the violence of place : borders bleed by Charles D Thompson( )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This title was first published in 2001. Exploring issues of diversity and cross-cultural interaction and understanding, Maya Identities and the Violence of Place offers new perspectives on borderlands and identities, providing an important case study of people from Latin America on the move. Examining issues of indigeneity, diaspora, flights from physical violence and economic repression, and efforts to remain indigenous among a proud but beleaguered people, this book is replete with stories of movement and change that operate as means to maintain identity. Thompson examines how the Jacalteco Maya of Latin America form their identities as indigenous people, despite a long tradition of movement across the rigid constraints of borders? of geography, history, race and ethnicity. Religion, language, fiestas, and stories of leaving and return, all serve to bond people to their particularity. Examining the indigenous identity formations and religious convictions among the Maya in places where brutality has dominated the landscape and where violence is commonplace, this book avoids dwelling on centers? of culture and explains instead how Maya concepts of identity arise from travel, contact with others, and change. Thompson reveals the ironies of classifying as natives', aboriginal? or indigenous? the many individuals and families who have become refugees, and explores how Maya have transcended the erroneous image of Guatemalan Indians ensconced within borders of particular land, and how they have overstepped popular portrayals of native? peoples clinging tenaciously to their sacred? soil as their sole means of surviving culturally and spiritually. Showing bleeding borders to be more than a recent occurrence, Thompson argues that there has never been a time when Maya did not have to travel in order to remain who they are. Exploring ideas of human to land connections and how religion among the indigenous makes change and movement possible, this book offers invaluable insight"--Provided by publisher
