Annelysse Eggold- Intellectual Profile

1. I am a studio arts major with a focus in graphic art. More specifically I am interested in the advertisement world of art. I have always been very interested in modern and contemporary art, especially in todays society.

2. I visited the King Tut Exhibition at the Denver Art Museum as a project for ARTH and found it to be fascinating from several viewpoints:  archeological, artistic, reliquary, and as a international profit making extravaganza designed like an artistic Disneyland.

3. I read Einstein by Walter Isaacson.  On one account it is a story of a man’s life with all the attendant moments of agony and ecstasy, tears and laughter.  However the life of Einstein seems to reflect the paradox of simplicity emerging out of complexity.  It appears that genius is always willing to dare, to confront the status quo, to “take the road less traveled.” 

4. Traveling! I would love to travel the world! I am very interested in experiencing new cultures and new people as well as different kinds of food and music! After I took Art History 1 and 2, it has made me want to travel even more and see for myself all the amazing monuments, sculptures, paintings and everything else I learned, because Its hard to picture what these monuments actually look like from just a book.

5. I really enjoy Stumbleupon.com. This site allows you to “like” the art you are interested in and it continues to explore your interests. “Stumbling” has led me to discover a variety of different types of art including; arts, comedy movies, design, drawing, environment, fine arts, humor, music, nature, painting, photography, and photoshop. This site has also given me great ideas for my sketchbook.

6. I went to a concert at Red Rocks for the first time this Fall! On stage while the band was playing there were 2 artists on both sides of the stage. Both were painting on large canvases creating amazing abstract designs. As the music played the artists painted along. I found this experience to be very inspiring and an interesting way to create a work of art.

7. I was on Stumbleupon.com one night and I came across these amazing photographs. Inspired by Andrew Sullivan’s airplane window picture series, here’s a very large collection of awesome pictures taken out of airplane windows.

8. By: Johann Wolfgang Goethe

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”

There is a longer version which adds a beauty and depth to this idea:“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

9. Yes, I attended the Tut Exhibit in Denver last year and it was a spectacular event both of art and artistry which was a combination of a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and a trip to Disneyland.
