Constructing a Thesis

I have never been interested in art before.  I thought that by going to the High Museum I would discover a love for art that was hidden deep within me.  While I did enjoy my visit to the museum and did fine some of the work fascinating, I have found that my research paper is not really going in the direction that I thought it would.  As I work on my thesis, I begin to wonder what is the goal for my paper.  I have experienced the museum.  I have talked to various workers at the museum and some visitors.

I have learned that the building that houses the High Museum is a piece of art in itself.  The museum houses thousands of works of arts.  It is a tourist attraction for the city of Atlanta.  I have taken pictures of some of the lovely art pieces.  But where do I go from here?

After careful review and reflection, I have decided that my paper should first tell the wonderful things about the museum that everyone enjoys.  Then, I should focus on why I don't like it as much as I had hoped and some improviements that could be made to make the museum better for the younger generation.

So here is my thesis:  The High Museum of Art is an architectural wonder, contains thousands of pieces of art, and is a great tourist attraction for the city of Atlanta; but is it a good attraction for the younger generation?

  1. Hey,
    I'm definitely on the same page with you as not being interested in art. I've been to the high museum once or twice and its not the most interesting place in my opinion. But, i like the way you are approaching the paper and i think it gives a unique point of view for a research paper
