People in a museum, looking around the artwork
Heather Arenas, “Eye Catching”, oil on cradled wood, 24 x 36 in.

Heather Arenas: My favorite piece in the Ringling Museum of art is a piece by Carl Marr, ‘The Mystery of Life’. I have stood in this position staring at it. Do you ever wonder what people are thinking when they stare at a piece in a museum? Are they an artist looking at technique? Are they interested in the artist’s meaning of the piece? or are they making up their own story? Or is it all of the above?
