    The Tampa Museum

    • 1469 Words
    • 6 Pages

    My visit to the Tampa Museum of Art took place on the 4th of February 2017. The Tampa Museum of Art is located at the heart of downtown Tampa and is home to some of the most widely acclaimed creative works of art in the United States. I had never been to a museum prior to my visit. My visit to the Tampa museum was very informative and a rare occasion to learn about the beauty of art. I was pretty anxious from the beginning because I didn’t know where to start, but after speaking with a security personnel who gave me an overview of the sections, I sank right into this new world. I was completely clueless about museums and didn't know what to make of them. I went online and read a little about the museum and found out that it was one of the top five museums in the country because of its cultural diversity and integrated urban population. The personnel gave me a brief tour of the museum and told me the museum does not hold gallery collections, but their exhibition is based on a periodic basis. The museum was also filled with visitors and their families, all engaged in a series of photo shoots. Many people may consider a museum collection as very important in determining the quality of the museum but modern day assessment…

    Art Museum

    • 795 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The art museum that I was able to visit is called the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. This is a fairly small museum. It exhibited a peaceful ambiance. The arts it included were mostly paintings. Overall, I was not impressed with the museum. The museum displayed artists with a lot of bright colors that really jumped out at you. I personally prefer classical art over contemporary art. I feel that classical art has more of a calming feel to it. I also really like art from the Hellenistic…

    Earth is comprised of a myriad of cultures and identities, both directly and indirectly influential to each other. Because of these connections, it is vital to study or at least garner basic knowledge of other cultures. A key factor to this cultural integration is the establishment of museums for ease of access to the general public. Museums are highly based on visuals and it is very important for museums to present themselves well. The SAM and the Burke museum utilizes their displays very…

    The world sees museums as a place to go to be entertained or to learn about something. One of the world’s most popular museum resides in the upper west side of New York City. Aside from it being a tourist spot, it’s also one of the biggest museums and holds a huge collection of artifacts varying from different times of history. An approximation of the amount of artifacts is, “8 million, but many curators will privately admit that this is most likely a guess.” (Preston, :176). What people don’t…

    Harn Museum

    I went to the Harn Museum at UF. I had an overall positive impression of the museum. The museum was kept exceptionally clean. There were gardens through glass in multiple places which was a nice touch. The museum was not busy the day I went, but if it was there would have been enough room for everyone to move around. The lighting was good and sensors were set up to warn security if someone was getting to close. It was free admission so not having to pay anything was nice. The people up front…

    literal definition of the word museum is “an institution devoted to the procurement, care, study, and display of objects of lasting interest or value; also : a place where objects are exhibited”. So what exactly do exhibitions represent and how do they do so? Exhibitions are put into museums that differ by age, target audiences, content, national and regional orientations and just simply by ambition. The type or genre of a museum might be the significant difference that divides through all of…

    Sistine Chapel Museum

    Like Crarys description of the stereoscope, which, according to him, its a better representation of the modern period of photography. This reflects the scientifically based idea that an optical experience is based as much on the body as it is on the machine. So in other words I can say that the museum is the machine that makes up move and see things in one particular way, but what if instead of us moving across the machine, the machine moves around us. Spaces that change, works of art with out…
