The Heard Museum conveys the life and culture of Native Americans in the Southwest, with the help of pre-Colombian to contemporary art and a variety of traditional artifacts. Something that caught my eye was Rosie Yellowhair’s “Emergency Story” sandpainting. It depicts the Navajo creation story
During my time at Get Acquainted Day, I spoke with several organizations. The first organization I spoke with was the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority. Most of the Zeta’s are currently students at Central Michigan and celebrating 11th chapter! Now this wasn’t my first time speaking with the Zeta’s, I met with these women during the IMPACT program and I also came in touch with them at Main Stage. Immediately when I walked to their table they were full of excitement and recognized me from the previous times I spoke with them. Something that I learned new about the women of Zeta Phi Beta is that they were first of many sororities to collaborate with another organization; the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity . Together they have worked on various of community service projects, local activities and share a brother and sisterhood bond like no other.

When I toured the Wichita Art Museum, a collection that caught my eye was in the Highlights and Insight section. It is called, Martha Graham Dance Class which is created by Paul Meltsner. My thoughts on this collection is that it bold yet calming to look at. Additionally, Paul Meltsner used deep colors of blues, oranges, reds, and purple, however by using these colors with the characters dancing, his piece is a creation of elegance. Personally, I think this collection stuck out to me because it is an oil on canvas. To add, this art piece stuck out to me because I am a musical person starting from the age of 6 years old, I played the piano so I felt that this creation of ballet was musically drawn to be elegant. Not only does the art express

Metropolitan Museum of Art, I’ve observed many interesting paintings, sculptures, and artifacts. The exhibits I chose to write about was the tomb of Perneb because it is the only thing I remember the most when I know that I have to focus on Mesopotamia or Egypt. Mastaba Tomb of Perneb was original came from the period of Old Kingdom, Egypt that located in the Egyptian necropolis at Saqqara. It was discovered in 1907, purchased from the Egyptian government in 1913 and given to the Metropolitan Museum of Art by Edward S. Harkness. Perneb was a court official in the royal household who had a role in the robing and crowning of the king; his tomb was attached to the larger tomb of the vizier Shepsesre, who may have been Perneb’s father.

CRN 71523 - ONLINE Valeriia Baumgard Museum Report – The J. Paul Getty Museum Vincent van Gogh – Irises, 1889, oil on canvas Perhaps illness so influenced the artistic style of Van Gogh, but the picture turned out completely different to all that the artist wrote so far. This is not a Van Gogh, who was known. In the canvas, there is tension, anxiety, dense colors and warm shades of olive-mustard. On the contrary, here there is some kind of lightness, airiness, and transparent weightlessness. On the manner of execution, the pattern resembles Japanese prints: iris field full of peace, a lightness, and transparency. "Irises" are simple and unique, they are striking in their serenity and the ability to remove the internal stress of everyone who saw at least reproduction. Painting simply breathes watercolor, translucency and make to look at it more than one hour.

The museum’s main purpose is not only to educate the public about American Indians, but also to “deconstruct stereotypes” and give tribal members something along the lines of a safe place where they are welcome to embrace their ethnicity. One factor that showcases the information I previously stated is the fact that tribal members have free admission into the museum. Another way the museum salutes the ethnicity of American Indians is by commemorating Native individuals alive today. Names of famous Native Americans are displayed along with their contributions to the ethnic group. One of the people displayed is Sarah Deer, who is a professor and lawyer that fought for Tribal Jurisdiction.
Post Modern attributes of the de young museum: History: The Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 damaged the old de Young museum building located in Golden Gate Park and uncovered severe seismic flaws in the building and hence a comprehensive plan to rebuild the building in stages was overtaken to make the de Young museum up to date. In January 1999 the Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron were chosen to rebuild the De young museum, due to their willingness to engage in an extended process of architectural design and also because their prior work demonstrated a drive to explore new building solutions for each client. Each of Herzog & de Meuron’s prior buildings were known for their strikingly different façade treatments and the use of uncommon

This was actually my first visit to this museum since I have gone to Kennesaw. My expectations were pretty high initially upon going, because I have heard so many things about it from my peers. Just by their opinions, and my love for art I have myself, I was actually excited about going in to take a look. I must say, I was not disappointed by any of the art work I saw in there. I really enjoyed the exhibit of work from some students from a high school around this area. It really shows that the college really supports the youth of the future and their passion for art as a whole.
