In October of 2014, Bill Nye, of “Science Guy” fame, spoke at Lewis & Clark College as part of the Speaker Series sponsored by Campus Activities Board (CAB), President Glassner, and Dean Gonzalez. The advertisement for the events announced that Nye would “talk about his early history, the importance of science education, and “[inspire] others to change the world through it.” Expectations were incredibly high; Nye did not live up to them. His talk lacked a clear purpose and was hard to follow at points. Still, many students left the event reasonably satisfied with the talk.
An illustrator is a creator of art that helps a person visualise what you are reading. Illustrators create the drawings in the books you read. Imagine not having illustrations in books. Without illustrations do you think that you could picture what was happening? I know that I could not visualise what was happening if there was not illustrations.

The 8th grade class took a 4 day trip to Washington. We did many things to explore Washington D.C. including visiting monuments. Some people think differently of how a monument should be made. Good monuments to some people could be to make people remember about the person or thing being remembered or to just reflect the person’s life or importance. In “The Follower Problem” by David Brooks, David thinks a good monument should show power and authority.

For my second museum visit I went to the Tampa museum of art on the 17th of April. There were several pieces located here with a majority being antiquities such as sculptures or pottery. In addition to these, there were oil paintings as well. Out of these, the painting that I found interesting and will discuss was made by Wolfgang Hutter and is titled Rebus Game. What is interesting about this title is that rebus is a riddle formed by pictures or symbols that are representatives for words and meanings.
There are very few picture of Harriet Tubman. We also printed out a wanted poster for her arrest. No only did we find pictures of Harriet, but we also found an image of her family. The paper used behind the text was silver glitter paper and a metallic star paper. In all the board took us multiple days and many hours to make it our
I have been in this group for 5 years now and when I perform no one would ever know that I had a “speech difficulty”. I have performed not only all around Cleveland, not only have I performed all across America but I have also performed all the way in France for students, ambassadors, and even delegates. I am not trying to boast, I am trying to say that only you can label yourself. Last year I had the opportunity to be a part of the FBI’s FAIT (Future Agents In Training) program, I have been in the newspaper and even on the news multiple times.

The intended audience would be anyone seeking information about the Vietnam War, whether it is a student writing a paper or an individual looking to collect information and become enlightened on the subject of American history. “Book a primary source exhibit and a professional speaker for your next event by contacting…Our Clients include many Fortune 500 companies, associations, non-profits, colleges, universities, national conventions, PR and advertising agencies. As the leading exhibitor of primary sources, many of our clients have benefited from our historic displays that are designed to entertain and educate your target audience…” (Klos). The advertisement and self-promotion located at the bottom of the website may point to slight biases but I do not believe that the historical information presented is incorrect, it just may mean they are funded by and are more supportive of certain companies.
On July 22, 2017 I had the pleasure of going to the Sid Richardson museum in downtown Fort Worth, Texas with my sister. The museum was founded in 1982 and features western paintings by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. All of the paintings are from the man the museum was named after, Sid Richardson 's, own personal collection. One of the main reasons I decided to go to the museum was because I had never heard about it before even though I have lived in Fort Worth my whole life and have been to almost all the museums in the area. I also wanted to observe the different kinds of people that would be at the museum and see how they viewed the paintings.
Today, the collections within the museum include photographs, videos, audio tapes, documents, newspapers, works of art, religious objects, books, clothing articles, and more. The exhibits serve to educate the public of the 250 year history of Jewish life in Florida and include a Timeline Wall, The Mosaic Core Exhibit, and 3 audio-visual presentations. The building itself has historical significance in Miami Beaches Jewish history. Events also take place at the museum, such as walking tours, lectures, and concerts (Jewish Museum of Florida- FIU).
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about you visit to the National Guard Memorial Museum. Over the past week I have learned that museums are so much more than what I had originally considered them to be; an institution. I never knew that a zoo, aquarium, or circus is technically considered a museum, wow! I have gathered so far that a museum can exhibit anything of important pertaining to humanity. I have visited many museums over the past 11 years because of my husband’s military career.
