Making meaningful personal connections: A phenomenological study of non-art specialist museum visitors' experience of paintings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

This paper is based on a phenomenological study of non-art specialist museum visitors' experiences of paintings. It examines various types of meaningful personal connections that can be made in the experiences and shows how this meaning-making process will sometimes result in a narrative form. This finding may be helpful to museum curators and art educators in fostering meaningful experiences of works of art in museums. Copyright © 2006 Canadian Society for Education Through Art.
