FACT OR OPINION: The two posts- More Ad Propaganda & Gary Null- AIDS, Inc. are great examples of propaganda. How do we examine these sources to determine if there is bias or false information? Is controversial information always biased or inaccurate? What do you think?

MEDIA LITERACY: What does it mean to be media literate? Visit the media literacy links and category.

THE FIVE QUESTIONS!
This page will allow you to post your comments and discoveries for online Fading Ad assignments. For each image, identify:

1) Find the GPS location using Google Earth?
2) By which industry was the product manufactured?
3) Who is the target audience?
4) Is this a product you would use? Explain.
5) Solid, Liquid or Gas? Combinations? Living or non-living? Predict of which elements, compounds, or materials these products might consist.

Use the links to find your answers. Any other unanswered questions can be posted in the Parking Lot Page where I will best try to answer. I would suggest this page to be used for further discussions as well.

  9. This is quite a legacy you are creating – Congratulations! Keep stirring up the worlds’ imagination – God knows it could use some stirring up….

  10. Frank,

    I am history major @ Felician College in New Jersey. From those of us to whom the past means so much, thank you for what you are doing in preserving these ads on film for posterity. Historically and sociologically, they are an indelible part of our past, a hallmark of who we as a society were @ the times they were painted/put up, and thanks to the diligence of you and those like you, they will at least be preserved in some fashion.

    When my boyfriend and I come to NY, we will definitely be visiting your gallery.

    Btw on a personal level, you are truly an inspiration to me on what a person can do, no matter what he or she is going through, so I also send thanks for that as well.

  11. Maggie- Thank you so much for taking the time to write such kind and encouraging words. The “physical” gallery has been closed for a few years but the virtual will continue. Write me when you come to NY and come over to our house for some espresso or tea.

    Best,
    Frank
