Tornado of human culture fans flames.

I was really struck by a piece in first half of the exhibit, with the two ‘crosses’ in a red center surrounded by black figures walking or getting sucked into the center of a vortex that they could not escape. When cultures are mixed together confrontations arise and create conflict and lead to aggression. The strength of the dominant/white culture in the U.S. is like a tornado that has sucked life and expression from people that got sucked in close to the fire in the center of the tornado; building a bigger stronger fire, which will eventually tear up and burn down everything.
