637 words - 3 pages

My report is about my visit to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. This is the first real art museum that I think I have ever visited. After touring all of the paintings and special exhibits I found that the special exhibits that were currently on display were not my taste. The main exhibition was all about Chinese art.

The other special exhibit was a tribute to a pair of American modernist photographers of which they had a portion of their print collection on display which I did not find an interest in.The work of art that I will be basing my report on is focused on the style that I believe was the most visually appealing to me during my visit to the museum.
