The first picture is od the church of Santa Prisca and Sebastián on page 102 & 103. The second image is of Gerónimo de Balbās, Altar de Los Reyes on page 96.
I feel that both of these churches resemble the Church of San Xavier del Bac because the architectural atyle that was used was Baroque. Both images share facades that they both have outside the church. The facade is rathee large compared to me in the third picture. I wamted to be able to show a size comparison.
The inside of all the churches are almost alike but the Gerónimo de Balbās church resembles the church kore because of the very high, rounded ceiling that it has in the center, as if to draw attention to the heavens with the beautiful artistry. It is as if the architects wanted the church to appeal to the soul of a person and make them gravitate into the church with it architecture being so artistically pleasing to the eye.
I believe that this church is significant to people today because it was built bu the papago indians. We are able to see the beauty of it’s time that it was built

Life takes so many turns. We make plans but they, most often, do not turn out exactly how we plan them. I am fortunate that I have people that love, care and support me. At the end of the day all i can do is count my blessing because there is ALWAYS SOMEONE out there that is living through a far more worse/has less then situation then i do! 

This is the same church that I visited. The major difference is that at this time, the church is experiencing construction.  At different times, it seems that the light hits the church differently. During the day, your eye focuses more on the brown entrance and in the night it shifts to the sides of the church. With this clear picture, all the intricate detail is focused on the brown entrance to draw people im with its architectural beauty.

Ch 7: From Revolution to Renaissance (1920-34)

This chapter is about famous Mexican painters, who’s art flourished in this time period. A famous post-revolutionary Mexican artists by the name of Diego Rivera is known for his beautiful murals that were about the people, their Mexican culture and mestizaje as well. Diego Rivera was an artist that was for the people and his country. Many artists that wanted to continue to paint what they wanted joined the Mexican Communist Party  and they formed the union called the Sindicato de Obreros Tecnicos, Pintores y Escultores de Mexico. They did not want their art to be controlled, dictated, censored in any way, shape or form that they felt the need to protect their artistic expression and freedom in 1922. 

As time progresses, so does the art and the way it was being thought of was changing. A more modern approach was being taken and a good example of this would be the Juan O’Gorman House-Studio for Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The studio is modern because it stood apart from all the other houses in the location that it was. The house was painted various colors. 

Frida Kahlo was another famous Mexican artist who’s art expressed how she was feeling and how she viewed herself. An example of her modernistic approach to her art is The Henry Ford Hospital. This particular painting lets the viewer know the grief that she was feeling at the time of the loss of her first child with her husband Diego Rivera. 

The art was evolving, the painters views changed like that of Diego Rivera and art had a new meaning. it was something that was not seen before. 

The San Xavier has several different colors, white and light brown. Due to its existing construction that is visible in the second picture, to the lower right region of the picture, it is in reconstruction to help maintain the church. There is texture. In the first picture, there are images that show that the only flat surface is the white surface. The texture lies on the light brown surface, the entrance to the church. On that, there are two saints on each side, one on top of the other. One saint has no head and the other saint does. This could be attributed to the vandalism that the church experienced years ago. At the entrance, there is many intricate details and the main focus is the entrance because it’s saints and beautiful designs lead the eye to. The left side of the church is finished and has a dome with a cross at the top of it. The right side of the church does not have a dome, it looks unfinished. 

I am standing in front of the beautiful San Xavier church. It is located in Arizona. I chose this church because i love the architecture, inside and out. Within, the church is intricately detailed with images of saints, angels, crosses and so forth. The church has high ceilings and has beautiful paintings on the ceilings. This is my favorite church because it has so many different stories within and outside it walls; the natives that built the church, it reconstruction to its unfortunate vandalism. I apologize for the poor quality of the picture, it was done no justice, but due to prior engagements, this was the only time i could take the picture.

Blog 1: Chapter 1 New Images, New Techniques

Los Conquistadores wanted to convert the natives beliefs in religion as well as their art. They wanted to, if you will, renew the political and religious images (Oles, 20). In order to help with the transition of the natives, Cortes sent Christian images to the social elite to better help the natives convert and give them a visual to see what they were devoting there lives too. 

Those that were in charge of the creating new art were the Franciscans. They were responsible for all the converting of the natives. With the art, they helped further influence them. They took it upon themselves to re-educate the natives because they felt that it was there duty to relieve them of their pagan beliefs and life’s. 

There was a chapel built for the boys to learn manual arts and crafts. The chapel was founded by Pedro de Gante. They discouraged the natives from practicing there own art form with feathers because they thought of them as heathens. But through this, they were making the art which produced a hybrid of the two cultures cultures that portrays itself through the arts. An example of this the School of San Jose de los Naturales, Mass of Saint Gregory. This piece of art shows that both cultures were both able to unite and create this using feather mosaic and cornstalk paste to make it. The majority of art that survived was a mix of both cultures combining and making the new art that the colonial period was seraching for. 

To each there own is what the majority seems to forget
