At the Morris Museum of art is home to a wide-ranging and permanent collection of works of art dating from the early eighteenth century to the present. It also presents special exhibits of a rich variety of art celebrating the culture of the South. I took several photos of my favorite paintings and sucplters. My daughter and I had a lot of fun we went on a free tour and learned a lot about the paitning at the museum and even played a scavenger hunt game.
The museums had very intriguing artifacts to look at, I was mesmerized by all the different cultural and religious artifacts I viewed. After viewing all the exhibitions, I liked the Greek Mythology section the most because of the different statues and pottery, most of the exhibition was mostly either of paintings or jewelries. The Greek Mythology had statutes of almost very god/goddess and what represents them. The artifact I chose is called Terracotta Bell-Krater (bowl for mixing wine and water). This artifact was located on the first floor of the museum, and there is other type of vases and Greek artifacts around it including statues of Greek Gods.
Areas of thematic focus in of Rosamond Lehmann 's The Swan in the Evening include death and the power of writing (Séllei, 2009). Further, Séllei (2009) points out the ability for "the trauma of death" to act "as a source of writing" (p. 175).

Last weekend I went to visit my one of my friends, who recently got a teaching job, in Rome, Georgia. Since there was nothing to do while in the small town I decided to head over to the museum to waste sometime and have something for my cultural event paper. I went on a tour and informational guide about Rome. The museum was called the Rome Area History Museum. The tour was sponsored by the Rome chamber of commerce and the tour lasted for 30-40 minutes.
One event from American history that I wish to have experienced would be the opening night of Carnegie Hall in 1891. Carnegie Hall has been important in the development of American History; it is one of the most significant venues for classical as well as popular music in America. Musicians from all around the world come to Carnegie Hall to perform for its renowned acoustics and beauty. This exquisite concert hall, drawing the world’s greatest artists, has set the guidelines for excellence in music since it opened in 1891. It was Andrew Carnegie, himself, who said, “It is built to stand for ages, and during these ages it is probable that this Hall will intertwine itself with the history of our country.” This moment has great significance to
“wow!” I thought as I stood amazed trying to analyze the significance through each piece of art. Art has always been a form of expression. Although art has been seen as a way of freedom of speech; it did not begin to show up until the 1960’s when their art made by minorities started to be appreciated. MOLAA museum shows an important aspect of U.S. history. These exhibits exclusively made by chicano artists from Southern California, show freedom of speech and social problems such as immigration that the artists believe are present in the United States. These art pieces are aided by its use of objects, how it curates those objects, and use of space to create a relationship between viewer create many historical arguments about the significance

In 1979 a group of Ladies, interested in Historic Preservation, form a non- profit organization called “League for Historic Preservation “ to save many historic building and have some nominated as historic landmark. We were quite successful, we save few, and promoted historic preservation. We work very closely with the National Trust for Historic Preservation . My best voyage with the group was on a journey to see the Italian, Greek, Yugoslavia cost, ending in the grand canal in Venice.
The mere action of exhibiting can transform anything into art, which is termed the “museum effect”. The very placement within the museum context grants the object importance and validity. Who has the authority to define what is art? What mediates the relationship between the object and the museum visitor? How do we interpret the interesting assertion by Professor Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett—"[in the museum] objects are not found, they are made"? Do you find the “museum effect” helpful or not? Sometimes, isn’t it only in isolation that we can truly appreciate certain objects? How do we relate Alpers’s “museum effect” to Haraway’s essay—how does the African Hall rely upon display techniques to maintain its given ideological
The “Mona Lisa” is the best known and most visited piece of art. It is a portrait painting done by Leonardo de Vinci. The portrait is an oil painting on a white Lombardy poplar panel. The woman in the portrait is sat upright in an armchair, with her arms folded. This painting was one of the first portraits that depicted the sitter in front of an imaginary landscape. The portrait represents the beauty of the time period. It holds simplistic colors with detailed shading. The artwork is very intriguing to me. I love the detail in the background, there are tiny brushstrokes that makes up the mountains and sky. Also, I find the shading of the mouth and eyes very interesting. I like that Leonardo da Vinci painted the woman with no eyebrows, as they were
