Thank you for submitting your Web site. We are always looking for great sites to add. As you can imagine, it takes time to evaluate each one that is sent to us. With that in mind, you should expect to hear from us in about a week concerning the addition of your site. We appreciate your patience with this.

Nice web page!
No female artists contribute to your art history portion, however, which bothers. I imagine it bothers about 51% of your student body as well. You may want to consider looking into:
- Jenny Holtzer
- Barbara Krueger
- Hanna Hoch
- Maya Lin
- As well as the weavings of the Navajo, which make excellent use of color and design.
Gender and equity issues are discussed in the ArtiFAQ 2100 Directory and 5O % of the future artists represented in the
future art gallery are female.
A woman artist Nina Akuma completed Leonardo's Bronze Horse. Proper credit is given to her in the history section
You should also note the ArtiFAQ 21OO project was completed within a contest time frame (through the Spring Break) in only 45 days.
As the project expands we will indeed have the time to do justice to the major contributions of worman artists past and present.
On our already three year and ongoing ThinkQuest Project Why is the Mona Lisa Smiliing? we highlight Lillian Schwartz and Rina de Firenze as the two key female perspectives on the identity of Mona Lisa.
We are partnered with Millénaire which is run by Deborah Phellan.
The John F. Kennedy High School Computer Graphics program and I myself as its creator, have fostered female leadership and excellence in technology. Eight of my female students have won Media Arts scholarships and have also presented at SchoolTech Conference. Indeed, their presentation was written up in an article on ZD-Net.
I do appreciate your comment and want you to know that I share your sentiment and have been working on the identical advocacy concerns.
Unfortunately, I do not get too many girls in my classes. The counselors generally program the girls for typing instead of computer graphics. I have been trying to change this "policy" for many years.
Subject: Multicultural Resource Recommendation for Amigos
Date: Mon, 10 Jul 2000 07:53:05 -0700
From: Carmen Guanipa firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for considering Amigos. In the end of August, I will work in including your project in our resource list.
If you see any possibility of doing teleconferences or any collaborative work with your students and our students, I will be very glad to work with you in a possible collaborative project.
We need to look at what are their needs. I can work on issues of self esteem, acculturation, family issues, Importance of multiculturalism in their personal success, etc.
My expertise is in the area of psychology and marriage and family therapy. I do research in multicultural issues.
Please keep in touch.
As a proud multicultural educator for over thirty years in the inner city schools I can invision and already share with you many of the concerns issues and artistic expressions of my students acculturation and affirmation sentiments.
In the spirit of Lily Wang-Fillmore, my students struggle with retaining pride in their Latino traditons and language vs. defining themselves as Americans. They also face family hostility toward their breaking away from cultural dating, family rituals and religion, in favor of the rights, recreation and lifestyle of inner city Bronx non-Latino peers.
Some of them are overburdened with family responsibility for non-English speaking relatives and their own children born to parents who are not skilled in proactive adult responsibilities themselves.
I note their art which melds traditional elements from their ethnic and cultural backgrounds, through the tool of technology and their eagerness to work in collaborative conversations with Japanese peers about the Miho Museum, manifests itself in their computer graphics projects.
Since they are already involved in a multicultural translation of their web site with Estonian peers into Spanish and Russian, I think a dialogue and exchange of family pictures and environmental themed computer graphics, as well as graphic representations of city and school life would form the crux of an interesting conversation which could have multiculturally indicative graphic arts counterparts-- this would facilitate ELL participation and excellence.
Carmen, take a look at our Leonardo site and see how multicultural themes and spirit informs the web site!
- Digital musical postcards in 23 languages
- A special page devoted to our entries on the My Hero Web Site
- Memorial to John F. Kennedy Jr..
Furthermore, our guestbook evidences various multicultural perspectives on Leonardo and fosters interpersonal multigenerational dialogue. Many grandparents shared it with their grandchildren.
As you can see Carmen, we have much in common and a collaboration between us and especially students with peers would be a rich action research and culturally informining experience.
Perhaps we should at least set up a web or pre-survey for our collaboration of potential topics for us to work on.
Its your turn. Pick up a thread of this rich tapestry and go with it.

Hello Mr Feld,
Thank you for the information on your site about Leonardo da Vinci. We will be reviewing the content of all of our exhibit web sites over the next several months and I will be sure to provide the information you have sent me to our reviewers.
As an aside, I happened to receive a message from a student who was looking for information on Leonardo da Vinci on the same day that I received your message. So, I provided him with a link to your site. Thank you for that!
And, thank you for visiting the Annenberg/CPB web site. I hope you come back often.

I was extremely impressed by your sites and what I was able to see and participate in. I look forward to returning to both sites to go through them more completely when time allows later this week. You can be assured that they will both find a link on ExploreArt. Did your students do the web design also? I look forward to sharing these links with my students. They will be encouraged by the work you have done. Thank you for sharing!
