I had the pleasure of visiting The Miami Art Museum and was very impressed by what I encountered and viewed. I have never found interest in art until I got to see the museum. Throughout my exploration at the Miami Art Museum I was able to view a wide selection of art. In this venture, I viewed the most beautiful artwork I had ever seen, observed interesting non European/North American art, was alarmed by the most disturbing works , explored a breath taking exhibition, and actually found work that I would actually take home with me. To begin, from the many pieces of artwork I was able to view at the Miami Art Museum, I can honestly say that I chose a very distinct piece as the most beautiful. In my opinion, the most beautiful piece is an art work made mainly from wood and some scrap metals. The artwork is titled “Looks like Clutter” by Leonardo Drew. Leonardo Drew was born in Tallahassee, FL in 1961 and now lives in both Texas and New York. The pieces of wood and scrap metal he used on this piece of art were from a burned down structure near his studio. There are pieces of wood that stick out more than 12 inches from the frame or base giving this artwork a 3D effect when standing in front of it. Some pieces are even darker in color showing a sign of the burned wood. As I carefully viewed this artwork, I must say it really caught my interest. It made me see that even the most basic and unconventional tools can be utilized to make a brilliant piece of art. This artist really put effort into this piece and thought outside the box. Looking at the art made me wonder what type of structure the wooden and scrap metals came from and how the structure caught on fire.

The non European and non North American artwork that I found the most interesting was created by the artist Eugenio Espinoza. Eugenio Espinoza was born in the year 1950, in San Juan de los Morros, Venezuela. The name of the art piece is “Otro Geomtrico” and was completed in 2005. This image is black...
