The Metropolitan Museum of Art
I like some art but I love museums. I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the first time on a sixth grade field trip. I liked the museum but didn’t take much of an interest in the art and only left with vague memories of Ugolino & His Sons.
Over the next few years I revisited the museum and always made it a point to revisit Ugolino & His Sons which had become my favorite work of art in the museum. Since my earlier trips, I’d developed an appreciation for other sculptures and decided to revisit The Met after purchasing my first dSLR camera. I had a great time walking around the museum seeking out new sculptures to add to my mental list of favorites and taking photos helped me to retain memories of what I’d seen.
