Tuscaloosa Museum of Art

Lisbeth Lopez

I visited the Tuscaloosa Museum of Aft. I absolutely loved everything about it. The first thing I noticed was the building themselves. The tour guide informed us that they were built to resemble a Japanese place. It was beautiful and the pond in the back added a great effect. Once we entered I was amazed at the great historical works of aft. One of the first paintings I saw was one of George Washington. It had flags in the background. This painting was relevant to the course because he was the first president of the United States and one of the founding fathers of our country. He was played a key role in the revolutionary war, which is a topic we discussed. The next piece of art that I took notice of was one of the siege of Yorktown. This relates to our class because we discussed the times of exploration of the Americas. Yorktown was one of the settled towns. This battle that took place in Yorktown was also the last major of the revolutionary war, which also ties back to President Washington who led the continental army. The last piece of art i observed was a painting of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1840. This I thought was one of the most important pieces in the whole museum. This was the first time that American’s took a stand as a country. Some of the most important people in our countries history were in that room. This was the moment that we became the United States of America.
