Medium of Art/Technique of the Artist
The sculpture, Zandvoort, had lots of dimension and bright colors that did not come across as well in the picture. The way all the pieces fit together and wrapped around each other even though it looks random and busy seemed harmonious to me. The bright colors originally grabbed my attention, but the shape of the sculpture inspired me to take the picture.
Design of the Museum
Most of the other exhibits were open and brightly lit. The painting exhibits had lots of open space between the paintings, but the Elusive Spirits exhibit had walls in the middle of the floor that broke up the open space. There were sculptures and other pieces hidden away in corners and behind walls. The lights were slightly dimmer in this exhibit. This enhanced the artwork by forcing me to almost have to search for the art. The art felt almost elusive and secretive, similar to the name of the exhibit "Elusive Spirits"
Art and Core Values- picture of artwork that appeals to core values
One of my biggest core values is balancing work and life. This picture spoke to me about the life aspect of that value. Some of the girls are refugees and have gone through tough times, but they found comfort in friendship and religion. This picture reminded me why I believe that having a life and things you enjoys doing outside of work and school is so incredibly important. Those little girls have been through very stressful times, but they still find the time and the will to do their first communion. Which is something that is important to their religion and beliefs.
