How to Visit an Art Museum: Tips for a Truly Rewarding Visit

Description:
'The only way to understand art is to go to a museum and look at it', French painter Renoir suggests. But once inside, this is easier said than done. What do you do when the label simply reads 'Untitled, 1973'? Where to look when a painting offers you a picturesque but undisguised view of a giant vagina? And how to react when the museum guard stares at you for far too long? How to Visit an Art Museum offers fresh perspectives on how to behave once inside the museum. Whether a first timer or a frequent visitor, it shows you the sense and nonsense of museum etiquette. The typical museum behavior - 'Walk slowly, but keep walking' - is seldom the most rewarding. That's why this book encourages you to look outside the box and tackle the challenges that art presents to us by taking matters into your own hands. It helps you to find out how you can use museum guards to your advantage. It helps you to learn the rules of thumb for distinguishing good art from bad art. It explores how kids are able to offer you glimpses of the world hidden behind an artwork.
How to Visit an Art Museum shows you how a little courage and creativity can go a long way for making your museum visit truly worthwhile. Because, ultimately, the art museum is what you make it.
