Event 3

  UCLA has incredible resources in the arts program and there is even a museum on campus. Most people, like myself, was unaware of this until this class. The Fowler Museum consists of mostly art and cultural pieces from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas from all past and present. It is a collection of cultural pieces from all over the world and is a great representative of the diverse culture that UCLA takes pride in.

The figures in the exhibit were somewhat human, but also seemed a bit unhuman as well. The Indian artist named Vivian Sundaram had unique figures that were only made out of recycled material. The recycled material that came from all over the world added an extra bit of creativity that I enjoyed.
The next exhibit that I enjoyed was called "Intersections". This exhibit incorporated all types of art forms from around the world. It included art that seemed to be native and I could imagine them being created by local tribes which was interesting to see how art is unique from different parts of the world. A lot of these pieces of art look very simple at first glance, but as you continue to look at them you start to realize the small intricate details that make this art so amazing. The different masks that were all unique and all had specific characteristics about them stood out to me.

 I would absolutely suggest visiting both of these exhibits and the Fowler Museum in general. If you are a person that was unaware of these places like I was, then I strongly suggest to take a look because it was impressive and opened my eyes to the world of art.
