Abstract

Look at the wall, there is most likely a purpose behind everything that is on the wall in view. If you ask a two year old why they drew on the wall they’ll blame it on the dog. The teenager inscribing obscenities on the bathroom stall will probably do the same. Both people are basically curious and trying to communicate something of relevance to them from different stages of life, and they are not the only ones. This study will focus on artists from two separate eras essentially doing the same thing. How does rock art of the Fremont of Central Utah and Street Artists of today compare? The symbols of their curiosities, beliefs and cares will be explored through religious, social, and adventurous means. The goal is to work with the USU Museum of Anthropology to unearth behaviors of the past by what we continue to see people do today.
