    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 and how there were five worlds and what made the people move from the first world to the next. I thought that this was interesting because in class we talked about creation stories about Native Americans and

    The United States Holocaust Museum was a unique and touching experience that can greatly influence your views on World War II and the Holocaust. Upon first entering the building, my family and I stopped by the front desk for some information on the building. The white-haired man at the desk was happy to help us. He explained that there were multiple exhibits to view at the museum. The largest exhibit was their permanent exhibit, which occupied three floors. “How old is he?” the man inquired, referring

    my classmates had the opportunity to visit the National Center for Civil and Human Rights museum in Atlanta. Georgia. This museum focuses on stories of advocates who fought for the human rights of human beings. They did a wonderful job of making each exhibit explanatory and unforgettable. The two exhibits that caught my eyes were the segregation exhibit and the lunch counter. When we first arrived at the museum I was very nervous. The

    On Thursday March 22nd, I visited the Laguna Art Museum with my boyfriend. I was very excited for this assignment because I am a member at the Laguna art museum, but didn’t yet see the new exhibit for this season. The Laguna Art Museum is small and therefore, usually runs exhibits on one artist at the time. I knew I would more than likely only be able to pick art pieces from one artist. At this time, they were displaying a local artist, Tony DeLap, and work from his collection titled, “Retrospective”

    PARTE 1 I visited the Kimbell Museum last Friday and I specifically looked at the ‘Pre-Columbian Art’ from the permanent collection which was painted or based on Spanish/Latin American culture. These art pieces are very important to the Spanish culture because each of them hold a part of their history; even the long gone cultural beliefs/ practices. The pieces are there so we can learn about the past or how each of the pieces have influenced the cultural values of the Spanish speaking world. The

    Maine State Museum. This is one position I could really enjoy, as they are looking for someone who has the ability to do the “‘telling’ of personal and community histories through objects (AAMJobHQ, n.d.); something I adore doing. It seems as though every aspect of this position involves many of the areas I enjoy. And, in looking over the requirements, I find I already possess many of the skills and qualifications for this job due to my experience as the curator of our city’s museum for the past
