Part of the Design of this room that made it so unique in my mind was the wood panels. The wood that surrounded the outside of the art made it seem as if the pieces were being set up in order to sell. They had the pots set up in a way that made it seem like a normal chest filled with pots, but when you were able to get up close to the pieces, I saw how each pot had its unique side. The design of this room provided the ambiance that made me dig deeper into each singular, art piece.
All the pots consist of similar themes, but their individual traits give them each their unique twist. The wood floors and wooden frames that protect the pots give this room a different feel than the other rooms in the Harn.
Art and Core Values
This piece really appealed to my core values.
This piece is called, Manhattan, by George Grosz
This piece of art is very personal to me because of what it portrays. New York City is my favorite city in the world, one I definitely want to live in someday. The city represents ambition and hard work, something you can achieve if you really put your mind to it. George Grosz used oil to paint a sky line that I could see myself living in one day if I stick to my plan and continue to pursue what I am passionate about.
Art and the Good Life
This piece, St. Jean's Bay, by Leon Kroll, represents some parts of the Good Life for me.
St. Jean's Bay is a beautiful piece. For me, it represents peace and leisure, two things I definitely think help make up the good life. The setting of this piece helps represent my view of the good life, because I love nature and there are not two better places to be than in the mountains or by the water. The people who are just laying out and getting to experience both the water and the mountains are definitely enjoying themselves, and if you combine the setting with the mood the artist is trying to portray, you can definitely see some themes of the good life.
