Visit a museum or art gallery before the end of Week 9. If you are unable to get to a museum or gallery within your area, then a "create your own museum" assignment can be completed in its place (see Option 2 details below). The museum or gallery should have content that fits our course well. Here is some information about the museum visit in person: It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what isavailable to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you.If there is a traveling exhibition, it's always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can lookat other things.The quality of your experience is not measured by the amount of time you spend in the galleries or the number of works of art thatyou see.The most rewarding experiences can come from finding ten (10) works of art by five (5) different artists who intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece.
