Write my research paper

​Instructions

The two (2) key types of activities are a museum visit or a performance.Visit a museum or gallery exhibition or attend a theater or musical performance before the end of Week 10. The activity (museum or performance) should have content that fits our course well. Have fun doing this.
Write a two to three (2-3) page report (500-750 words) that describes your experience.
Clearly identify the event location, date attended, the attendees, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the event.
Provide specific information and a description of at least two (2) pieces (e.g., art, exhibits, music, etc.).
Provide a summary of the event and describe your overall reaction after attending the event.

You can visit a museum or a performance. You may also write about a previous time you have been to a museum or performance but please still clearly identify the event location, date attended, the attendees, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the event.

If Visiting a Museum:
It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what there is available 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 travelling exhibition, it’s always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things in the museum.Every effort should be made ahead of time to identify a museum that has items and works one can easily connect to and covers from ancient times to the 1500s AD.In general, museums with artistic cultural artifacts and fine arts work better than history museums.Take notes as you go through the museum and accept any handouts or pamphlets that the museum staff gives you. While you should not quote anything from the printed material when you do your report, the handouts may help to refresh your memory later.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 that you actually see. The most rewarding experiences can come from finding two (2) or three (3) pieces of art or exhibits which intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums even have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece. If you are having a difficult time deciding which pieces to write about, ask yourself these questions: (1) If the museum you are visiting suddenly caught fire, which two (2) pieces of art or exhibits would you most want to see saved from the fire? (2) Why would you choose those two (2) particular pieces?

If Attending a Performance:
Check to see if there are any free or low-cost performances or college student recitals. No high school or lower performances. Must cover from ancient times to the 1500s A.D. Our course does cover Shakespeare and Greek tragedy and drama, so any performances of those will work. Note: One can sometimes find music performances of music from the Renaissance or Reformation period, or even earlier.Take a pen or pencil with you and accept the program you are offered by the usher; you will probably want to take notes on it during or after the performance. Look for very specific things (such as a particular piece of music or the way certain instruments sounded at a specific time) which tend to stand out as either enjoyable or not enjoyable. Be sure to take notes of the things which you find enjoyable as well as the things which are not enjoyable.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; references must follow APA style format. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

Explain the importance of situating a society’s cultural and artistic expressions within a historical context.
Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social, cultural, and artistic expressions
Use technology and information resources to research issues in the study of world cultures.

Write clearly and concisely about world cultures using proper writing mechanics.​

HUM Assignment 3: Cultural Activity Report

My choice of the museum was the African American museum located in Philadelphia, which I visited on 10th March 2016. I arrived at ten o’clock in the morning, and the departure time was 5 pm since the facility closes down around this time. I found this museum convenient due to its nearness to where I stay. Moreover, I wanted to take advantage of the discounted prices extended to individual students. However, one has to identify themselves to the museum staff at the entrance by producing their school identification cards.

I found the environment to be conducive, and one could choose to overstay in the museum even after accomplishing their mission as long as it was before 5pm. The guide taking me round had a friendly personality and showed confidence when answering the many questions I posed. The study around the museum was also very tiring, and I opted to relax on a bench after going round. The relaxation gave me the opportunity to go through the notes I had jotted down in my notebook.

Gallery A contained a wall with enslaved people who had no relatives since their family units had disintegrated to become slaves in different parts of the globe. I touched on each wall’s screen to listen to topics of my choice since individual walls contained information about different subjects. Major topics included family, law, religion, politics and culture. The love I hold for my relatives pushed me to select the family theme and hopefully learn how ancient families disintegrated under various circumstances.

The story from the screen talked about a man forcefully alienated from his relatives to become a slave. His family members also followed suit, and none of them had the hope to ever meet the rest again. At this point, I could not stop being grateful that together with my family, we are living in peace and are in touch with each other. I could not stop to appreciate the historical figures who geared their efforts towards restoring the identity of African Americans. A story that touched me most and left me emotional was about a man named Henry Box Brown. He so desired to be free from slavery that he mailed himself to Philadelphia. It was after 27 hours that he managed to get his destination so fatigued that he almost lost his life since the turning over inside the box left blood flowing to his head extensively.

I visited at the same time when a special traveling exhibit was taking place in galleries C and D. The guide told me that the name of the occasion was “The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection.” I had the chance to view the displayed beautiful dresses worn by the Supremes as they performed. I found the exhibition to be very resourceful since I gained a lot of knowledge about the Supremes. For example, I learned how they would make travels all over the world and the meetings they held with the Queen of England during which they wore elegant outfits. I could not take pictures in these galleries since the museum staff feared that the fragile items contained here would break if one tripled while photographing. They also insisted about the delicate fabric of the Supremes costumes which would not go well with the camera flash. Both galleries C and D had special lights fittings that would not be of any harm to the attires.

In the gallery C and D is where I found two important collections that were very appealing to my eyes and with thought-provoking pictures. The first fine arts’ artifacts that caught my eyes was a small prehistoric bowl from ancestral Anasazi. The museum guide told me the bowl is dated 900AD and was a collection of Anasazi people who lived in Colorado plateau in the  Southern Utah. The bowl was made of white colored nephrite, which gave it a unique look. The museum guide told me the Anasazi people who are today known as Ancestral Pueblo were prehistoric farmers in the ancient times.

Another artifact of fine art that I found more appealing was a Gila utility bowl. The pot was well maintained, though it had a few notable cracks and had several pieces missing. According to the museum guide, the pottery was created in around 950-1150 A.D. The pottery depicted a good and an exemplary example of the workmanship of this time frame. On the rim, the pottery was decorated with some feminine drawings. From my viewpoint, I thought whoever crafted the pottery must have intended to use like a gift for someone special. Within the short time I spent in the museum, I found the place extremely amazing. It was a good experience which I believe is worth anyones time.
