Why I made this
I was never the type for art museums.
I didn’t see the point of walking through silent rooms and staring at paintings and sculptures that I could just search online.
But recently, I’ve become fascinated with art and art history.
In the past three months, I’ve visited SF MoMa, the Art Institute in Chicago, the Guggenheim, NY MoMA, and the Whitney Museum –– maybe it’s just the frequency at which I visit art museums now, but I’m inspired to learn more about the art that resonated with me at these museums and explore more of the art world.
After watching more movies and documentaries with artists, I’m not particularly fascinated with the art per se, but more so the artists and the experiences and movements that inspired their art. I never took art history classes in school (maybe I’ll take one next semester or something), but this is my attempt to take my art interest into my own hands.
