The picture shown above was taken in my favorite wing of the museum. This is because it contained such a wide variety of art forms which were all arranged in different ways that best suited the art itself. As you can see, there are pictures on the wall, circular objects on a table, and a statue on a pedestal. The way they designed this exhibit captivates the viewer in a way that draws their attention in different ways which keeps them interested and searching for more. In addition, parts of the exhibit were separated by walls to group similar styles of artwork together. The lighting contributed to the experience by highlighting the specific areas where the art was placed. The design of the exhibit made me feel engaged and entranced.
The artwork displayed in the picture above appealed to my core value of equality. Many of the pieces demonstrate the overwhelming presence of men in the art world. One of the artworks talks about how there are very few women who have their own exhibitions, and another states that out of 71 artists displayed in a certain museum, only 4 were women. Gender inequality is a situation that is very prevalent in modern day life, not just art. The visual representation of the artist allows me to better understand the importance of this core value through their use of the bold, uppercase, and capital letters present in almost all of the pieces of artwork. The fact that the artist makes the words so apparent to the viewer demonstrates that they feel strongly about the inequality of gender representation in the art world, just like I do about gender inequality in general. The emotion that these pieces of artwork instills in me is hope, because I believe there is a lot of work that needs to be done to society, but with every artist that brings this issue to light, we are one step closer to a more equal society.
