A mural reading “Black Lives Matter” is pictured Oct. 11 in People’s Park near the Sample Gates. Artistic expression, in its many forms, has been a primary way for students and citizens to make their voices heard.

The connection between art and social activism can be seen on the streets, walls and windows of Bloomington every day. From the “Black Lives Matter” mural in People’s Park to the music playing in dorm rooms on campus, artistic expression, in its many forms, has been a primary way for students and citizens to make their voices heard.

This year has seen an enormous wave of social and political change including the upcoming election, the COVID-19 pandemic and discussions on racial inequality and policing. But, due to increased social and political changes many protesters are turning to art to express their views.

Harry Styles “Watermelon Sugar” Music Video Is Everything We Want

  • Today, Harry Styles dropped the music video for “Watermelon Sugar,” one of his hit singles on his sophomore album, Fine Line.
  • The video, which has the singer eating copious amounts of fruit among a crowd of bikini-clad girls, is dedicated to “touching.”

    There’s only so much I can say about Harry Styles in his newly released music video for “Watermelon Sugar,” fresh off his sophomore album, Fine Line, before this piece starts veering off into NSFW discourse.

    Harry Styles Wore a Pink Manicure in His “Watermelon Sugar” Music Video

    While our summer may look a little different compared to past warm-weather seasons due to the novel coronavirus, Harry Styles would like to take you to a hot-day paradise in his latest music video, “Watermelon Sugar,” which features the singer frolicking on a beach eating watermelon, surrounded by friends, touching and interacting with them. (Seems like a dream, doesn’t it?) As beauty editors, however, what caught our eye more than the summery, perfect day in the video is Styles’ summery, perfect manicure.

    There has always been a ridiculous stigma surrounding men wearing nail polish. However, that has never phased Styles at all since he wears polish so often, most recently the bubblegum-pink, matte shade in his new video. The hue just screams summer, and whether this year’s warmest months are spent social-distancing near the water or in a Zoom party, there’s always an excuse
