Museum Trip Essay

My Visit To Museum Of Art

To some people art is very important, to others it is nothing. To most, it is nice, but fades besides the everyday problems of physical survival, housing, food, money, children, etc. The value boils down to what you think you are: a meat machine or a spiritual being. For a meat machine, naturally anything that is not about physical survival is very secondary. The spiritual being needs more than physical product, but sources for development of mind and thought. There appears to be something about art that really means something to many of us. The observable fact that art makes people happier, and also that happiness is one of the most important factors in life, even if you only look at bare survival. Happy people are more productive, and production is basic for survival. From this I can say that art is not a mere "luxury", but rather a vital ingredient in our lives.


I had a chance to visit two museums during my fall break, and I enjoyed this event very much. Philadelphia Museum of Art made great impression on me as usual. I was there several times before, and I really love this place. This time the exhibition of the African Art was very memorable to me because I never seen such collection before as we don't have them a lot in the country where I'm from. This exhibition was organized by the Seattle Art Museum, and it took an "insider's" approach to African art. Reframing the objects, African Art ("African Voices") proposed looking at what was once done with them while also listening carefully to what was once said in their presence. The exhibition was divided in thematic categories and described by representatives from various African cultures and backgrounds. The show included near 130 objects: textiles, sculpture, jewelry, masks, photographs, etc. I found the exhibition very diverse, original and interesting; I would say that it does worth attention. The Ga Wree Mask made in 20th century...

Whitney Museum of Art Essay

Museum Trip

When this project was brought to my attention at the beginning of the semester I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know much about the history of art or any of the specific terms that are used in the art world. I have been to museums in the past but that was when I was in elementary school and they didn't teach us any of the specific terms that they used in the art world. On the handout that you gave the class you wrote questions that you though would be helpful for us to answer to succeed on this paper. The museum that I decided to go to was the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. In the following paper I will discuss what the museum looked like, the tour that I went on. What I thought of the tour, the…show more content…

After looking at the fountain I made my way to the information desk to get a map and a list of the tours that were going on that day. I looked over the list and decided to go on the John Singer Sargent tour.

When I arrived at the National Gallery of Art there where a lot of different tours that I could have went on. I decided that I wanted to go on the John Singer Sargent Tour because I had read about him and some of his works while doing my clipping collection. I also wanted to see some of his work because they were pictured in the Baltimore Sun. The paintings that were in the Baltimore Sun that I actually got to see up close was the Madame X and Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose. These two paintings in the sun were just black and white photos but in the museum their beauty was unbelievable and also there size was impressive. I had to wait in line for about 40 minutes before the tour started and it lasted about an hour I'd say. The first painting that you see when you are on the tour is the Madame X. Madame X is probably the painting that Sargent is most famous for. In the painting Madame Gautreau stance and provocative dress were thought to be eccentric and astonishing. Madame Gautreau mother wanted Sargent to take out of his show because she thought that the painting was to provocative. The other painting that was in the Baltimore Sun that I saw was Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose. This painting was Sargents masterpiece,
