The design of the museum is very open and organized in a way that makes the artwork easy to look at and appealing to the eyes. The white walls make the exhibits look more spacious and isolates the artwork so the focus remains only on the artwork. The paintings are organized and placed next to artworks that have similar themes or color schemes so they don't clash with each other.
Eighteen-Light Pond Lily Lamp by Louis Comfort Tiffany from 1902
The Eighteen-Light Pond Lily Lamp represents one of my core values, creativity. Tiffany utilizes designs from the natural world and incorporates it into his artwork. Since it's a lamp, it also serves a functional purpose. His interpretation of plant life is presented through the eighteen water lily bulbs and a lily pad base. Personally, creativity is important to me because it emphasizes the importance of individuality and originality, as well as self-expression.
Islandia, Goddess of the Healing Waters by Audrey Flack from 1988
Islandia, Goddess of the Healing Waters demonstrates the good life. Flack draws inspiration from classical sculpture, which is seen through the figures balanced proportion and gold hues. This figure symbolizes women's empowerment as indicated by her open arms. It focuses on the ideas of an egalitarian society, promoting the balance of power between men and women. This piece promotes the good life because it rejects the norm that men are more powerful than women and to seek happiness despite societal ideals.
