The 9/11 memorial, on the site of twin towers tragedy is a greatly build memorial. My visit there 2 weeks ago was heart warming experience. The memorial was one of the most beautiful tributes t had ever seen. The water splashing against your skin brings a sense of peacefulness and somberness. It will always remain ground zero in my mind.
Congratulations on the purchase of your new American Motors vehicle equipped with Star Bright Satellite Radio. We know you will enjoy it for many years.
My building(Palace of fine arts) contributed to the Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair from many ways. First reason, how the Palace of fine art contributed to the fair was by “relieving them from monotony the exterior facades were adorned with mural paintings representing the history of art”(Says, 2017). This means this building was used to help people out. Second reason, how the Palace of fine art contributed to the fair was by “showcasing artworks”(McNamara, 2004). Palace of fine art shows off to Chicago to the rest of the world by “housing over 10,000 artistic works from around the world” (Wadsworth, 2014). This means that this building allows a safe place to put the exhibits. Finally, the Palace of fine arts is now called, “Museum of Science and Industry.
As I walk on the grounds of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, I encounter one of the Oldenburg and van Bruggen’s giant shuttlecocks. Additionally, as I view and walk around this giant shuttlecock, I cannot help but think of how this object is disproportional, especially in comparison to it’s surroundings. The shuttlecock is huge and unbelievably larger than the average size of a shuttlecock, which would fit within the palm of my hand. An altered view is created by the use of the visual principles of scale and proportion in order to create this sculpture.
Outside in the front lawn of the Nelson museum, I found the big, architectural structures, the Shuttlecocks, were very eye appealing, and caught my attention immediately. They were four shuttlecocks, built in 1994 of aluminum, and fiberglass-reinforced plastic, that are painted white and orange. The sculptures looked to me as some sort of structural pop art, to possibly represent the fun outdoors in people’s daily lives.
The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, part of the New Orleans Museum of Art, contains several dozen 20th century and 21st century sculptures from across the globe. The five-acre garden mostly features figures from American and European artists, most of them being created within the past 70 years. Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of City Park, many impressive works are presented at the sculpture garden. However, two particular works that stood out to me were the Venus Victorius and Untitled.
The Arch gave St. Louis a name. The building of the arch wowed the world and gave stl a name. Stl became unique and not like any other city anymore. “ A person approaching it by car or plane cannot help but marvel at its size and elegance.” Because of the Arch’s massive size
Dreams lead to false hopes and are deceiving! That’s at least what some say. But throughout the dream unit we have seen and have read about achieving our dreams and not going the distance. It is worth it to dream because dreams give us hope and purpose, working hard at our dreams can have a great outcome, and Dreams can lead to more than we can imagine.
I have this thing for windows. I love windows. Windows all alone, windows together, windows with good views, windows with bad views. I especially like the old, square, wood framed windows from the colonial times. On top of that I love the history of how America was formed and hardened in the American Revolution. So you can imagine that when I found out that I was going to Philadelphia, home of the Liberty Bell, the courthouse where the Declaration of Independence was signed, and countless bits and pieces of history, I was pretty excited.
Dear City Council, I am a citizen who has heard about the decision of whether or not to use city funds for the sculpture. Our city is seemingly tedious due to the lack of art, and this would be a great opportunity to change it. I support the creation of this sculpture because it will enhance our city’s appearance and allow citizens to experience the beauty of art.
One of the Monuments me and my group went to see was The Washington Monument. Imagine the sky being gray looking at a 555 foot tall monument. The monument was made to honor our first president George Washington. One of the other Monuments we saw was the Lincoln Memorial. I felt like I was standing next to a giant monster. He was huge even though he was a sculpture.
In Greenville, Illinois, the local college campus holds a hidden gem: the Richard W. Bock Sculpture Museum. The museum holds hundreds of pieces of work by Bock and those associated with him, including architectural drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright. The house itself is historical, as it is the home of the founder of Almira College, the predecessor (precursor?) of Greenville College (GC). Built in the mid-1850s, it went through a major renovation in 2005 in which efforts were made to remain true to the original design and decor of the home. One room of the home has been set aside to house artifacts from the founders along with items from the beginning years of the school.
The anchor of this Renaissance is the revitalization of The Sears Concourse building. The Art Deco 1.5 million square foot structure built in 1927 was once a source of pride for the city, attracting 30,000 visitors at its grand opening to marvel at its decadence and eventually serving as a distribution hub for 50 years. Employing 1500 people and attracting thousands of visitors per day in the department store, it was an economic pillar of the Crosstown neighborhood. However, in 2010, the building standing empty for 22 years, became an eyesore that Crosstown co-founder Todd Richardson describes as “ a beacon of hope that is now a disappointing reminder of unmet expectations for the city”. The surrounding neighborhood would keep hoping sooner or later, someone would eventually solve the dilemma of what to do with so much space that had been empty for so long. Year after year, businesses boarded up, houses deteriorated and neighbors lost hope. No one knew what to do; that is to say, until an artist, art
The historic Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center (originally the Oakland Civic Auditorium), has been the focus of development plans ever since the 215,000-square-foot facility closed down in 2004. It's slated to become office space, but during its heyday, it hosted wrestling competitions, circuses and Elvis Presley concerts; in 1962, it even welcomed Martin Luther King Jr. to commemorate the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation.
