Land•scape: Redefining Landscapes in the UWM Art Collection

Land · scape: Redefining Landscapes from the UWM Art Collection explores the subjectivity of landscapes in art through four lenses. The exhibition engages with concepts of the deconstructed landscape, the ephemeral landscape, landscapes and power, and bodies as landscapes. Through these different explorations and their unique experiences in the space, visitors will be challenged to view landscapes in new ways and to view the gallery itself as a landscape.

I ran across one of my answers to a prompt we were given and even today I am proud of how clearly I stated how art history encompassed all life and history of the human realm. It's fascinating to see how much passion and zest I had back then and how I still carry it now, just with more knowledge and years behind this conviction.

The thing I am most proud of with my art history degree is my ability to quickly and efficiently analyze a piece of media/medium to its fullest extent. I am able to provide historical context, visual impact, the evolution of its design, and its efficiency in getting its point across as well as critique it from an objective point of view. I am literally carrying around a visual database of all recorded human history around in my brain and can use it at will. ( how cool is that?)
