Design of the Museum
The Cofrin Asian Art Wing is incredible because once you enter the wooden room, the light pours in from wall of windows that reveals a mystical garden. The use of light allows for the artwork in the wing to be illuminated and have a more natural appearance. Also, the wooden walls and flooring transition into the outdoor garden very nicely and bring unity to the space. This space made me feel comforted and relaxed as I viewed each art piece.

Art and Core Values
This picture of Frida in bed with a dog represents the love I have for animals, especially dogs. One of my core values is to love every animal and care for them because most are unwanted and unloved. Seeing this image of Frida loving her dog warms my heart because even though the dog is scruffy, she still gives him the attention the dog deserves. This image helps me better understand that all animals need love and I need to be more proactive in giving this love to the animals I encounter.
