Carnegie Museum of Art

This past Saturday, April 21st, the Student Art League sponsored a trip to Pittsburg during which we visited the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History. I found the museums to be extremely interesting and educational, with their vast range of items from modern art to dinosaur displays. Among the various exhibitions, one I particularly enjoyed was Maya Lin’s architectural display in which she abstractly recreated natural forms in order to express her own personal experience with nature, as well as to encourage viewers to reflect on their surroundings. Also on display in the museum was the exhibition Past Meets Present: Decorative Arts and Design, which featured a large installation of chairs  as a unique way to show visitors how design has evolved into the early 21st century.
