[tags: Asia Metropolitan Museum of Art Essays] - When most people hear the name “Ringling” they think of the Ringling brother, known for their world famous circus.
Besides their world-renowned circus, one of the brothers, John Ringling, had a vast collection of art pieces in his Florida mansion.
It was a great pleasure scrolling, fantasizing, and gawking art painting and sculptures online. I noticed my opinion was quite judgmental on more than a few pieces.
I’ve had the pleasure to browse through the National Gallery of Art in Washington D. I found myself confused with questions such as “how is this art”....
In reality, we rob ourselves of the enjoyment of the slow consideration of the phenomena we experience everyday.
Art is something static which we might use to slow us in our perception of our world.
It is not required that art be something static in motion but in thought.
It is not something to be considered with only fleeting attention....
While fulfilling this role, the architecture of the museum is also an important factor.
Historical buildings are converted into museums and architects must consider the use of the space and the museum’s purpose during their initial design.
