Medium of the art technique of the artist
The way the art looked in person was amazing because you could see the layers of it from all angles. Viewing it in any other way would not be the same because of it's multi-dimensional construction. You must walk around it and view it from all angles in order to take in every component that it is made of. Each individual piece is painted differently, and nicely contrast each other. The lack of a specific color scheme really stood out to me because the pieces did not blur together but stood out quite nicely from each other. My interpretation of this piece is that although we are all made of different values and express ourselves in different ways, we can all come together to form beautiful communities that flow very well.
Design of the museum
I really enjoy spending time outside with nature so the garden really appealed to me the most out of all the places in the museum. The sounds of birds, the wind, and the waterfall made the setting relaxing. It felt like it helped me unwind and release some of the stress I had been holding in from the week. Its subtle Asian details felt culturally stimulating and made me feel like maybe I was experiencing the culture of another country.
Art and core values
Equality is a very important value to me. As a woman, I have experienced discrimination because of my gender and the gender gap first-hand. I really appreciated the provocative and almost pop-art style to convey messages of empowerment and disgust towards the patriarchal domination of the arts and oppression of women everywhere. The artwork made me feel even more in touch with the feminist movement and reminded me why feminism really is so important.
