Columbus Museum of Art Today at 10:00am

Good morning. I hope you all had a restful night.

Today Hans and I will be taking some small groups to the Columbus Museum of Art. I was thinking that we might play a little game today that would give you an opportunity to practice your English a little while we're at the museum.

When I go to art museums with my friends, we play a game that doesn't really have a name--let's call it "Best in Show." The way that it's played is that for each individual room in the museum, you have to pick a favorite work of art--the one you like better than all the others in the room. Your choice could be for any number of reasons: color, composition, subject matter, emotion, style--whatever you like. Art is very personal and subjective.

Once every person is finished looking at all the art in the room, the group gets together and we each take turns telling each other which work of art we liked best and why. It's a great way to have a more thoughtful experience in the museum, and it's also an excellent way to get to know each other better. I think that the ways that people respond to art is an interesting way that they express their character and values.

See you soon,
Pete
