Medium of the Art / Technique of the Artist: During my time at the Harn, one of the cooler pieces of art was found outside. While I was questioning why they decided to put this random vase looking object outside, it occurred to me that maybe it belonged outside. If this artwork was put inside, it would feel very awkward and out of place. But looking at it with natural light and plants surrounding it, it seemed to fit in perfectly. The way the sunlight hit certain parts of its obscure shape was also very striking. If I were to look at a picture of it online, I would just glance over it. After viewing it in the sun, looking at every angle, I was actually glad that it was placed outside. This vase-like object made me feel complete, because It tied the outside garden together perfectly. I admit that after viewing this art and scrutinizing its placement, I have become more observant in why certain things are put in certain spots.

Design of the Museum: One of the most enjoyable exhibits in the Harn was one of the central rooms. It felt like no matter where you walked, you were always surrounded by artwork. The lighting was very bright which seemed to make the paintings and sculptures pop out. This particular exhibit was filled with black and white portraits of people who were all telling their own story. While looking at these portraits, I tried to see what these stories were. Some of them seemed to be in despair, longing for something that we know nothing about. On the other hand, I observed pictures of families enjoying themselves at some sort of occasion. No matter what I saw in these portraits, I wanted to know more. People say pictures speak a thousand words but to me, I always felt like I was missing part of the story.
