Feb.19 was a sunny day that was suitable for a tour. It was a Sunday, so I got up at noon, had a simple brunch, and went to the Harn museum with Yinjie and Zhuoyu.
I arrived a little bit earlier than both of my friend, so I stood by the sculpture of giant ants which I took a picture of and used as my cover of the spark story. While waiting for Yinjie and Zhuoyu, I saw many families, children with their parents or grand parents, holding hands, laughing, went into the Florida museum of natural history. Such scene, little kids going out with their parents under the pleasant warm sunshine on the weekends, just remind me that my parents used to take me out when I was younger. And now I'm far away from home, alone, speaking a foreign language, eating exotic food, feeling extremely lost and uncomfortable almost every single day. I almost bursted into tears before Yinjie called my name.
The exhibit "Women Artists from the Harn Museum" was hidden behind a door between two huge oil paintings. As I crossed the door, the yellow poster with slogan "Do women have to be naked to get into the met. museum?" caught my eyes and kind of shocked me. As I continued in this exhibit, all of these posters, these datas, these slogans, the difference between numbers of male and female faculty in art department of several universities even shocked me more. As there's no significant difference between male and female's talent, why opportunities are given so uneven?
