Exhibit Reflection

Duringthe presentation of my exhibit, the attendees were asked to fill out a survey
with 5 questions including:

What are the words/tboughts that come to mind while watching La Virgen de Guadalupe murals?What are the words/thoughts that come to mindwhile watching the Eagle murals?
What are the words/ thoughts that come to mind while watching the murals that integrate both La Virgen de Guadalupe and the Eagle? Do you think the meaning of these images changes or stays the same when they are juxtaposed in a mural? (the audience was able to select a 1-5 option, one being ‘not at all and 5 being ‘very much.’

Each of their responses helped me analyze and support my own arguments on mobility. The surveys were able to capture individual’s private thoughts without feeling forced to agree with the majority of the room. It was helpful to hear people's perspectives on these images at an individual level because although they all had similar points, they each presented unique ideas, which showed how these images are capable of impacting people from a diverse range of backgrounds. People were able to either take the interactive survey in person  (below is an image of the actual survey provided at the exhibit event) or take it online under my exhibit pathway link on Survey Monkey. The audience was also able to go outside and see how the murals projected on the Yale’s Deans Office Building, presenting them as the  massive works of art that they really are. The murals were covering pieces of a large building, just like they do in cities across Southern California. This effect made the experience very real, as if one was standing in front of the original mural itself.
