The Harn Museum at the University of Florida is named after Samuel P. Harn's family donated roughly $3 million dollars to construct a art museum. The museum later opened in 1990. The Harn museum has a wide array of different types of art, from modern, contemporary, Asian, African, art. Furthermore, the museum has is home to permanent and temporary exhibits. Visiting the Harn museum was a great experience, I truly enjoyed looking at the variety of art.
Medium of the Art /Technique
The piece of work I chose to represent this topic of medium of art and technique is Louis Comfort Tiffany's Eighteen-Light Pond Lily Lamp. This lamp is truly amazing and beautiful featuring bronze and Farvile glass. The intricate work of the lily leafs are so stunning and how the lights glow through irradesciently is truly beautiful. Seeing this work in a picture of a book, would not do it justice. Being able to see the lights shine through the lily flowers allows you to really appreciate the work.
