Visit a museum (of your choice)
and write a 10-page essay (with photos â€“ optional) about your visit. You should be thinking about Aesthetics as you travel to the museum, walk through the museum, and the after effects of the visit. Connect your various experiences at the museum with topics, ideas, concepts that we covered in our class. Considering a word count of 250 words a page, your essay should have between 1500 and 2000 words. This will leave plenty of room for photo illustration and examples in your 10-page essay.
