Good Life Tour of the Harn By Jake Gordon

This sculpture is called II-06-94. Nancy Graves the artist used bronze with patina and glass to create this piece. This medium is so striking because the bronze is thin, bumpy and twisted while the glass is very smooth and dense. Seeing this piece in person allowed me to grasp the size and gave me the ability to look at the piece from multiple angles which you cannot do online. The piece communicated to me that all aspects of life including science, music are intertwined. It made me feel complete knowing that this artist used an abstract art to express her opinion.
The Asian Collection exhibit was the most appealing because it had floor to ceiling windows that provided an influx of light into the room. The exhibit also has a garden; the garden has many different plants and trees and there is also a pond. It was very nice to be able to walk outside after being inside and most importantly the garden was beautiful.
This painting is called Night Light by Yvonne Jacquette. It represents my core value of a work/life balance because I want to be able to live life while at the same time having a steady career. The artist painted in a theater, people working, and a "moving" city to show that time does not stop and to prove that a work/life balance does not look the same for everyone. This piece is very appealing to me because I live just outside New York City and it reminds me of home. It also reminds me that I need to be around a city to survive.
This painting is called Jim Twadell's Place by George Wesley Bellows. This piece represents the good life because the women pictured is surrounded by nature and a home that she owns. The women feels secure and content. This piece adds to my opinion of the good life because it further shows how nature plays a huge roll in seeking the good life.
