City Of New York

by on Dec.03, 2012, under City of New York

The Museum of the City of New York is a very interesting one. As the name suggests, it displays many exhibitions of the history and art of New York City. This relates to my theme, showing the past of NYC and its rich culture. As you walk around, the plethora of pictures gives you a sense of timelessness in such a busy city.

Here is a link to a quick slide show of the Museum of the City of New York. It had a nice display of events throughout history with in New York City. It was very interesting to find out information about the city in which I live and go to school in.

American Folk Art Museum

by on Dec.03, 2012, under American Folk Art

This museum is devoted to American Folk Art. Folk art a genre of art of unknown origin that reflects traditional values of a society. Since New York City is like a melting pot of culture, the unknown traditional values of a society are important because it reflects NYC’s many values and beliefs.


This is a collage that I put together of pictures from my visit to the American Folk Art Museum. There were very interesting pieces that were abstract and creative. It was quite small, but that had a great effect on me because I was not overwhelmed by a massive building.

Guggenheim Museum

by on Dec.03, 2012, under Guggenheim

Here is a poem about the Guggenheim. Included are facts about the museum itself, the art inside, and Guggenheim himself.

One of many around the world, residing in the NYC

Over fifty years since it came to be

From a mix of sand and cement called gunite

The building is one of interesting and unforgettable sight

Curved walls in place around a circle core

Not the first architectural sketch seven hundred more

Modern art is a big inspiration to Guggenheim

But he perished before grand opening time

Walk up the spiral ramp all the way to the end

Seeing more and more artworks as you ascend, or descend

One of the exhibits is Picasso Black and White

Famous paintings like The Milliner’s Workshop, left and right

A very contemporary styled structure with unique pieces of art

Take a gander at it, it will intrigue your heart
