For my creative personal response paper, I chose to attend the Dallas Museum of Art this past Sunday. I came across numerous works of art. From paintings to sculptures, and drawings. Most of everything I came across in my opinion, were meaningless. Mostly because I could not decipher what the artist is portraying or the message behind it, while others were just ok. Until I stumbled upon a painting located in the Impressionism Gallery on the 2nd floor by Gustave Courbet. The painting I chose to write about is called the Fox in the Snow by Gustave Courbet.

    Charlotte and what it has to offer. Going to the Mint Museum by far has been my favorite outing because I have never been to an art museum before and it was very interesting to learn about the artist featured there and their artwork. One painting stood out the most to me during our time at the Mint Museum. I believe this painting depicts my journey through life and how my mom has been the backbone for my family and me.

When I first arrived, the place buzzing with life, mainly because of all of the Lycoming students, but still, there was a lot of action going on in the place. I saw some prints of Rembrandt, which they apparently just got in, but to be honest, I was not shook into awe, or head over heels for his art work, even though I understand his historical importance. Without…
