Good Life Tour of the Harn Museum Hannah Sweatland

Medium of the Art

While walking through the museum, I saw these vases that were made by Louis Comfort Tiffany out of fravile glass. Although they were not quite as elaborate as some of the other pieces in the museum, I found it interesting to think about how the pieces were made and how much patience it must have taken to craft them. The photos aren't great at showing the details in the glass, but each one had a unique pattern or design. Seeing these vases in person made me think about how much time and effort must have been spent to create them and the other exhibits in the museum.

Design of the Museum

David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing

I found the layout of this wing of the museum to be very interesting. I was covered in wood from floor to ceiling, had large windows overlooking a garden, and had large pieces of art on display on the ground. Unlike how I feel most museums are, this part seemed to me to be kind of warm and welcoming.

Art and Core Values

Views of Rome Drawn and Etched by Giambattista Piranesi

The above exhibit probably wouldn't have much of an impact on most people who view it, but it did for me. These drawings and maps brought me feelings of happiness and nostalgia. Last summer, my family and I went on a trip to Rome, Italy, and these pictures brought back all of those memories. Seeing the drawings of the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, Trevi Fountain, and the Pantheon reminded me of the great time I had when I saw those places in person. These drawings made me realize how much I cherish the memories I made during my trip.

Art and the Good Life

Three Men at Union Square by Isabel Bishop

This picture depicts how women in the 20th century worked very hard to compete in male dominated work. This can still be applicable in some situations today. For me, it makes me think of my future working in a STEM(science, technology, engineering, and math) field where many of the people around me will be males. To achieve the good life, I will have to work hard in order to achieve the success of both the painter and the woman depicted in the picture.
