Dear to whom it may concern in Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston I am writing to you to express my interest in the job opportunity “Terrace Research Associate in Egyptian Art” in the Department of Art of the Ancient World, one of open staff positions in Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston next Summer.

Notably, the intimate Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies (IHGMS) on campus at the University of Massachusetts offers students and community members the story of one community of Germany that was almost completely vanished by the Nazis during World War II.
MFAH CULTURAL RESPONSE ESSAY The art museum is truly a work of art in itself. I enjoy trips to places of culture, be it a play, musical, opera, art gallery or, in this case, a museum. When I walk in, I feel inspired to draw, paint, and sculpt. For just a little while, I get to focus on art and experience a sense of detachment from the everyday hustle and bustle of the world. Time truly seems to slow down when you’re at the museum. Upon entering the museum, I felt refreshed and frankly, smarter.
morning of Tuesday, October 11, I attended the 9/11 Memorial Museum. I had never previously visited the Museum before, so expectations of what it would be like were pretty general. Like most museums, it was assumable that there would be some artifacts on display, and plaques with detailed information on the events. Though, unlike other museums, it was also expected that this 9/11 Memorial Museum would have a lot more emotion in it than others, being the tragedy was as recent as 15 years and 1 month

The building was designed with a contemporary style and is an outward expression of its artistic, belongings inside. I visited the Museum on Tuesday, July 02, 2013, at around 2 in the afternoon. I was within the museum for about 2 ½ hours, observing the exhibits. The
Experiencing Art Everyone experiences things differently. Whether it be music, TV, national monuments, or art everyone takes these in different ways. I have recently visited the Cleveland Art Museum and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on a field trip. While visiting these places I was exposed to lots of different music, art, and historical items. Both places did things to try and “help” the visitor's experience, but while some of these did help other hindered the experience. Walker Percy states

When I got my first camera in middle school, I began to take pictures of the places we’d go, mostly the ever popular, ‘lie on the floor and put subject in focus’ pictures. Rather reflecting in a moment, I was saving it for later. I believe I was four years old during my first visit to the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. At this time, in the entryway of the National Museum of American History, hung the Star Spangled Banner flag, a 30 x 42
reflection paper I decided to visit the Young at Art Museum. It is located on Southwest 121st Avenue and is just south of 5-95.(Figure 1) I decided to go on a Friday and I think a few schools may have had the same idea. Upon first arriving I knew, almost instantly, that Young at Art was designed with the youth in mind. Which is great reasoning for the name Young at Art, but I hadn’t thought much of it before my visit. At first look I noticed that there was much to do at Y.A.A. and I was not sure where
The Museum Experience One of my favorite things to do when traveling in a new city is to visit the museums. I have never been to a city that did not offer the usual museum fare, usually in the form of the “Anytown Art Museum”, or the “Anytown Museum of Natural History”. While these types of museums house some incredible artifacts, and I do visit them often, I also like to seek out museums of a more unusual sort. Museums are mostly the same just about everywhere you go, both in the United
houses a grand architecture of knowledge and wisdom; The Queens Museum. According to the Museum's website, the building architected and renovated by Daniel Chait and was used for the 1964 World's Fair as the New York City Pavilion. Eight years later minor alterations were made to the north side of the New York City building and was converted into the Queens Center for Art and Culture, which was later called the Queens Museum of Art. The magnificent beautiful building, in 1972, it opened to serve
