Decades after World War One, a new building style emerged and continues to affect architecture to this day. Modernism is less concern about ornaments and holds at a higher priority the purpose and structure of a building. One superb example is The Kimbell Art Museum located in Fort Worth, Texas. This Museum continues to hold prestige in the public eye. Kahn was able to successfully use natural light and material that emphasize his architecture, while not over shadowing the art work displayed. These are few reasons of why The Kimbell Art Museum is an ideal museum that has only contributed to the modern age. This work of art is what many buildings and museums have always longed to be.
The metropolitan museum is the largest art museum in the United States, and one of the largest in the world. Upon going to the museum I found myself wondering how I can choose three artifacts out of nearly a million different relics. After spending countless hours roaming the three story museum and looking at the vast amount of artifacts I found myself overwhelmed with inspiration to write this analysis. The only dilemma was how one can narrow down the selection to three relics out of hundreds of thousands. After sometime I picked the three relics that I found interesting, spiritual, and showed a significance in modern and ancient history. The three relicts I will discuss in this essay are the following; Family Tree, Emperor’s Twelve-Symbol Robe, and lastly Mans Shirt, these three artifacts show in my opinion how god, the spirit and the universe all reflect upon the individual wearing the clothing/stories painted upon the person.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art came about as an idea from Jon Jay in Paris, France in 1866 with the idea of “national institution gallery of art” within the United States. Once this idea was proposed, it was immediately moved forward with his return to the United States. With the help of the Union League Club in NY they began to acquire civic leaders, businessmen, artists, and collectors who aided in the creation of the museum. For over 140 years, the visitors who go here have received everything the mission of the institution states.
Never in my life was I exposed to vast knowledge of different form of arts. I loved music and everything about it, but it wasn’t until I took Humanities class that I started appreciating movies from different cultures, literatures, and even arts and sculptures from different period and era. I decided to get out my comfort zone and make a trip to Museum of Fine Arts, Houston to explore and appreciated arts and sculptures from different part of the world.
Today, Wednesday, July 5, 2017 I took my first trip ever to the North Carolina Museum in Raleigh North Carolina. I found myself in shocked at how much I enjoyed myself looking and analysing all the different types of art pieces that were present in the gallery. While walking around there were so many many different types of artwork that I found it hard to decide on which piece to shared about this week. While walking and observing all the beauty that was being seen it amazed me about all the different way an artist could express themselves. While looking and taking in every little detail of each art work, there was one particular piece of artwork that was very
On my trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I decided to take my mother with me. While being in the museum, I decided to focus on “The American Wing”. In “The American Wing”, there are amazing pieces of art, jewelry, and antique silver. I was amazed on how each piece of artwork and item was carefully designed. They had an amazing design that you do not see now in days.
Wrapped outside the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is a crowd of sharply-dressed, young Bostonians. As the summer winds to an end, these new professionals are spending one of our final hot days standing in the sun. They aren’t waiting for a concert or a party. It’s the third Thursday of the month, and they’ve come for some live jazz and art.
I took a step back from the portrait, and started walking out of the art museum. An as I left the museum, I did so with a little more gratefulness. While I may not understand the giant pile of bricks in the foyer, or why a man inside an imac keeps shouting “do you understand?”, I realized it doesn’t matter. Not everybody is cut out to be the art-connoisseur. But hey, at least I have the opportunity to give it a shot.
One pleasant afternoon, my classmates and I decided to visit the Houston Museum of Fine Arts to begin on our museum assignment in world literature class. According to Houston Museum of Fine Art’s staff, MFAH considers as one of the largest museums in the nation and it contains many variety forms of art with more than several thousand years of unique history. Also, I have never been in a museum in a very long time especially as big as MFAH, and my experience about the museum was unique and pleasant. Although I have observed many great types and forms of art in the museum, there were few that interested me the most.
In the Isabella Gardner museum they were saying that people stole a lot of famous arts.The museum is offering 10 million reward for information that leads to finding the stolen works.The garner theft of 1990 remains unsolved the museum and FBI are still looking for more information that can helped them return the art works.

The Brandywine Art Museum is a creative experience that has changed my perspective of artwork due to its fine qualities and details. This historic museum is located on the Brandywine River, which provides a beautiful view of nature and water without even entering the gallery. Upon entering the museum, I admired the natural lighting of the museum on all of its floors. I also noticed the light wood floors and clear, wide window panes overlooking the river. I was immediately relaxed and ready to observe the intricate paintings from the family of Wyeths.
Many might have been working on Good Friday, but many others were enjoying The Frist Museum of Visual Arts. A museum visitor visited this exhibit on April 14, 2017 early in the morning. The time that was spent at the art museum was approximately two hours and a half. The first impression that one received was that this place was a place of peace and also a place to expand the viewer’s imagination to understand what artists were expressing to the viewers. The viewer was very interested in all the art that was seen ,but there is so much one can absorb. The lighting in the museum was very low and some of the lighting was by direction LED lights. The artwork was spaciously
As I enter the Gioconda and Joseph King Gallery at the Norton Museum of Art the first thing that Caught my attention was a painting measuring approximately at 4 ft. by 10 ft. on the side wall in a well- light area. As I further examine the painting the first thing I notice is that it has super realism. It also has color, texture, implied space, stopped time, and that it is a representational piece. The foreign man sitting on the chair next to a bed has a disturbed look on his face and is deep into his own thoughts. It’s as if someone he loved dearly just experienced a tragic and untimely death. He is in early depression. I could feel the pain depicted in his eyes. A book titled The Unquiet Grave lying open on the floor by the unmade bed suggesting something is left unresolved. The scattered photos and papers by the bedside cause redintegration. The picture of Medusa’s head screaming on the headboard is a silent scream filled with anger and pain, yet it cannot be heard. I feel as if I am in the one sitting in the chair and I can feel the anger, and regret.
