Such a wonderful at Rome. We got to explore and see so much of different types of art. From contemporary to mosaic to paint and sculpture. Many people didn't get to completely witness the amazing art that the Vatican museum had to offer including myself. But what I did get to see that some people didnt notice or didnt have enough time to see was some of the contemporary art and some amazing paintings like the Adam and Eve. It was so much to take it slowly, so I rushed through the whole thing to see the most of what my time allowed me. I got to see beautiful ceilings that were painted differently. One of the most amazing ceiling painting was the one of Adam and God. We weren't allowed to take pictures of it or anything in the Sistine chapel but hey we traveled this far to witness it. So why not take a memorable picture without the guards knowing? Well I did it anyways cuz I'm such a rebel :D. Another of my all time favorite ceiling paintings was the one located in the front left corner room of the Borghese Gallery. People were painted to look so real as If they were looking at us. What I loved about it was that it made me feel like I was part of the design because they would be sitting on the edge looking down at us and pointing at each other but mostly looking down at us. Such an amazing painting. So far it has been 2 since we have been in Italy and I've learned and seen so much. I just can't wait to be at the Biennale and hopefully go off to an agency to witness great work from graphic designers with the Slagles :D. So excited to witness so much breathtaking art.

Oscar, did you get a good sketch or image of that sculpture that you loved so much in the Borghese Gallery? You had mentioned that you might research it more. . . I can't wait to learn more about it!
