AbstractSocially engaged artwork challenges viewers to ask critical questions about society, to dialogue about issues that affect quality of life, and to question how art is considered. Art educators can provide opportunity to discuss and respond artistically to issues within their communities. One way to approach this is through place-based educational experiences that emphasize social justice and promote art activism. Place-based learning connects learning and problem solving to the local area and helps students see themselves as "actors and creators rather than observers and consumers" (Smith & Sobel, 2010, p. viii). Artist Charity White's "Prescriptive Space" was a temporary public installation of three ceramic figures on city benches in Gainesville, Florida. The installation was a comment on how the city controls space for the homeless through the recent implementation of benches that use a dividing handrail to deter people from sleeping on them. The figures were bisected not only to emphasize the dividing handrail, but also to contain information related to the city's history of public policy and the movement of marginalized people. Art activism such as "Prescriptive Space" is not centered around changing policy so much as it is on understanding alternative perspectives and counter cultural ideas. By pushing students to question their assumed environment, teachers increase the likelihood of them desiring alternative outcomes. The end result of art activism is to make students active instead of passive citizens. (ERIC).
