    long as the museum stays open. MOCA likes to include collections from more recent years, usually the last 40 or so. Its collections are temporary, only being on display in the museum for a few months before being sent back to where they came from, or sometimes being destroyed. The museum focuses more on just an artist’s painting or sculpture, they want to provide their visitors with background on the artist, the museum put initial sketches, and journals from the artist on display, and they often even include videos on some floors that serve as a sort of documentary on the artist and/or their work.

  • Food As An Art Analysis

    I find an interesting article on the internet which also talks about the hot debate whether the food should be viewed as art or not. The author Susan Smillie begins her article with a brief introduction of a piece of news which involves a wonder chef, Ferran Adria.
