The Altavas,Balete, Banga, Batan, Buruanga, Ibajay, Kalibo, Lezo,Libacao, Madalag, Malay, Malinaw, Nabas, New Washington, Numancia and lastly the Municipality of Tangalan. We all know that the said province was well known for its sugar fine white sand, for its magnificent coral reefs and its rare sea shells no other than the Boracay Beach . Aside from this famous beach, there are still some adventurous places that are not yet discovered by our local and foreign tourist such as the Cold Spring of Nabas,the mangroves of Kalibo, river of Madalag, Diving Spot in Buruanga, Wild river of Libacao, the oldest church of Batan, the Christmas Fantacy of New Washington, and of course the fall of Tangalan. Aklan also known as The "Queen of Philippine Festivals" which is the famous festival is The Ati atihan Festival, celebrated in honor of the Santo Niño. Parade of giant man made figure of a Raja, and colorful street dancing join the rhythmic dancing of the crowd who darken themselves with soot and don colorful tribal finery. Beyond Boracay and the Atiatihan, one can also find a dream possession in the province - the Piña cloth, considered as the ”Queen of the Philippine Fabrics,” and other fineries made from it. The Piña cloth is considered a prime produce of Kalibo, weaved from its unique crude wooden or bamboo handloom that changed little from eight centuries ago. Not just Piña cloth but also the Pot Making in Lezo. Lezo is one of the municipality of Aklan. It is one of the places which red clay is abundant which the natives use to make pots, vases and various novelty items. Beyond sand, sound and fiber, the province is a busy economically, doing remunerative business with its abundance of agriculture and marine resources. Its catalysts are the various industries spawned by its entrepreneurial population. It is working to improve on the traditional, while seeking new and innovative avenues for its development. So The Provincial Government of Aklan, especially the “Sanguniang Panlalawigan” of Aklan identified a site and proposing a structure that will house eventually what is Aklan is all about and all items will came from it Municipality of Aklan. It is the combination or art and culture museum. A museum is an institution that cares for a collection of artifacts and other objects of scientific, artistic, cultural, or historical importance and makes them available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary. Art museum also known as an art gallery, is a space for the exhibition of art, usually in the form of art objects from the visual arts, primarily paintings, illustrations, and sculpture. Collections of drawings and old master prints are often not displayed on the walls, but kept in a print room.

A curator (from Latin: curare meaning "take care") is a manager or overseer. Traditionally, a curator or keeper of a cultural heritage institution (e.g., gallery, museum, library or archive) is a content specialist responsible for an institution's collections and involved with the interpretation of heritage material. The object of a traditional curator's concern necessarily involves tangible objects of some sort, whether it be artwork, collectibles, historic items or scientific collections. More recently, new kinds of curators are emerging: curators of digital data objects and bio curators. An office is generally a room or other area where people work, but may also denote a position within an organization with specific duties attached to it (see officer, office-holder, official); the latter is in fact an earlier usage, office as place originally referring to the location of one's duty. When used as an adjective, the term "office" may refer to business-related tasks. In legal writing, a company or organization has offices in any place that it has an official presence, even if that presence consists of, for example, a storage silo rather than an office.

Brown V. Board of Education

...Brown v. Board of Education Ronald Still Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Brown v. Board of Education Background The Supreme Court case of Brown v. Board of Education dates back to 1954, the case was centered on the Fourteenth Amendment and challenged the segregation of schools solely on the basis of race. The Brown case was not the only case of its time involving school segregation, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was leading the push to desegregate public schools in the United States (Gold, 2005). Brown v. Board of Education was a consolidation of four cases that had made their way through the court system. It was 1950 and Linda brown was just seven years old, she lived in Topeka, Kansas and was African American descent (she was black). Each mourning Linda traveled 21 blocks and crossed through a dangerous railroad yard to get to school. Her journey to school took an hour and twenty minutes. White children who lived in the same neighborhood only traveled 7 blocks in a considerably less amount of time (Gold, 2005). Linda’s father Oliver filed a lawsuit against the Topeka Board of Education arguing that he wanted the same conditions for his daughter (Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 2009). The case was heard by three judges in Federal District Court, and they ruled against the plaintiffs, the case went to Circuit Court of Appeals and then to the U.S Supreme Court (Topeka, Kansas: Segregation in the Heartland). ...

Research Study to Apply Information Technology to Sri Lankan Museum System

...Rational A museum is an institution that cares for (conserves) a collection of artefacts and other objects of scientific, artistic, cultural, or historicalimportance and makes them available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary.Most large museums are located in major cities throughout the world and more local ones exist in smaller cities, towns and even the countryside. Museums have varying aims, ranging from serving researchers and specialists to serving the general public. Early museums began as the private collections of wealthy individuals, families or institutions of art and rare or curious natural objects and artefacts. The oldest public museums in the world opened in Rome during the Renaissance. However, many significant museums in the world were not founded until the 18th century and the Age of Enlightenment The Colombo Museum was established on January 1, 1877. The founder is Mr. William Henry Gregory, who was the British Governor of Sri Lanka at the time. JG Smither was the architect of the Public Works Department and was able to prepare the plans for the new structure based on Italianate architecture(Colombo National Museum). In 1876 Kandy Museum was established by Sri WicramaRajasinha and it was called “PalleVahala”.This is used as a place somewhere in the queen of king lived.

...Analysis of the Impacts of Tate Modern’s Economic Prosperity ABSTRACT Tate Modern is a leading museum in UK. Since its inception in the year 2000, the museum has faced a major regeneration phase. In addition to that, the museum has attracted millions of people within its confines. It has also grown massively affecting the community around it. This analysis aims at looking at what has been the impact of Tate’s prosperity .At this point, it’s worth noting that due to lack of capital resources, most museums undergo little or no progress. However, this is not the case with Tate Modern which has largely grown in size and rebranded its entire community The Stage recently reported (Merrifield, 2012) that local councils in the UK have reduced funding for arts organizations by 40% over the last year. Under ‘related posts’ on the website, there are links to a July article warning of a 90% cut in local authority expenditure on the arts by the year 2020 (Smith, 2012); one reporting a 40% cut since 2008 (Smith, 2011); one reporting the withdrawal of funding by London councils (Woolman, 2011); and one reporting a rather flaccid warning against such cuts, issued by the Arts Council of England in 2010 (Woolman, 2010). Clearly the present economic climate is not favourable for arts and cultural activities in the UK, or elsewhere in the developed world, where the effects of the 2008 global banking crisis continue to be deeply felt. The stories published by The Stage suggest that, at a......

Modern Cultural Artifact

...Memorial in Washington D.C For this week’s IP we were to write about a modern day cultural artifact that best represents the culture we live in today. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a brilliant man who stood up to fight for equality for African Americans in this country. Cultural Background Most people are already aware of who Dr. King was and what he stood for. His legacy will forever affect our society. Because without him we would not have an African American president, Blacks will probably still be treated as though they are second class citizens. Dr. King arranged marches, boycotts, and sit-ins. Even though he and his followers were often met with violence he continued to not lift a finger in anger towards anyone. Unfortunately some people still do think they was they did in the 60’s because they were taught that way of thinking by their parents or grandparents. Dr. King paved the way for Blacks to have the rights and freedoms of other men and he lost his life fighting for what he believed in. Making of a Memorial Dr. King was first recognized by the making of his birthday a legal holiday to be celebrated throughout the country. This was started by Rep. John Conyers and was proposed in every legislative session from 1968 until 1983 when it was made a bill. The first legal holiday...

Uderstanding Islam

...Introduction Islam is a monotheistic religious custom that grew in the Middle East in the seventh century C.E. Islam, which truly signifies "surrender" or "accommodation," was established on the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as a statement of surrender to the will of Allah, the maker and sustainer of the world. The ascent of Islam is characteristically connected with the Prophet Muhammad, accepted by Muslims to be “the last” end in a long line of prophets that incorporates Moses and Jesus. Since Muhammad was the picked beneficiary and delivery person of the expression of God through the heavenly disclosures, Muslims from all kinds of different backgrounds endeavor to take after his sample. After the heavenly Qur'an, the adages of the Prophet (hadith) and portrayals of his lifestyle (Sunna) are the most imperative Muslim writings (MET museum, 2015). Sufi Sufism is a Muslim development whose supporters try to discover awesome truth and love through direct experiences with God. Sufism has been an unmistakable development inside Islam all through the vast majority of its history. It developed out of an early plain development inside Islam, which, similar to its Christian devout partner, tried to check the experience that accompanied the fast extension of the Muslim group. Sufism emerged from inside Islam in the eighth ninth hundreds of years C.E. as a self-denying development. The development may have been given (or tackled) the name Sufism in light of the course fleece......

Cross Culture

...consider the implications of cultural diversity in Australia in a program which seeks to implement the National Conservation and Preservation Policy for Movable Cultural Heritage issued by the Heritage Collections Committee of the Cultural Ministers Council in September 1995. That document included ten policy statements intended to provide the framework for a proposed National Conservation Strategy which might pave the way for a concerted effort to improve the conservation status of heritage collections in Australia. In relation to cultural diversity, the statement of policy (Policy Statement 2) was expressed as follows: The Commonwealth, State, Territory and Local Governments acknowledge the diversity of cultures of the Australian people which should be reflected in the definition and identification of movable cultural heritage. Expressed in this way, the policy statement does little more than state the obvious that Australia is a culturally diverse community and that efforts, unspecified, should be made to ensure that justice is done to this demographic and social reality in the programs which are developed by museums, libraries and archives to build collections and to provide a range of services and products based on these collections. Like motherhood, the statement is unchallengable. Who could disagree with it? What it does not do is to consider the challenges of cultural diversity faced by governments and the collecting institutions which derive their mandate and their......

Art Philosophy

...Art in Theory: Mid Term February 26, 2016 1. When Marcel Duchamp first displayed his readymade, he was adding upon earlier, pre-Modernist conceptions of a painting as thing. The major new idea Duchamp added to the art world was that everyday things (such as a shovel in this case) can become art by simply putting it a place where one would expect to find art, such as museums and galleries. This caused the art world to reconsider what they considered art, based on the location of the piece (MoMA learning). Duchamp purposely wanted to disrupt this validating context people had established a work’s identity as art as entirely a matter of convention. What Duchamp did, which was brilliant in its own right, was he simply assigned an exhibition value to what was typically a use value object such as shovel or a urinal. The de-contextualization of objects by scrambling their semantic association, as the shovel or the urinal became a non-functioning referent (as we spoke about in class) through his choice and its appropriation. What Duchamp wanted to get back to was that art should be made to express the idea, not to provoke aesthetically pleasing results. His goal was to run from the Modern approach of thought, then action, as he preferred instead a delay in the onlookers mind, before considering whether something is art or not. That though provoking......
