HW#4: Is It Time To Take Down The Mona Lisa

Based on the New York Times article about the Mona Lina being taken down, I would agree that the 16th-century Italian masterpiece be relocated to a place of its own due to the chaotic overcrowding and disappointed visitors. According to the New York Times article, “The overcrowding was so bad, the museum had to shut its doors on several days.” This proves how it’s negatively impacting museum visitors and the employees of the Louvre. By building a separate place for the Mona Lisa and selling tickets with time sloths for groups of 10-15, can allow visitors from all over the world to a better view of the Mona Lina in a well-organized manner. The space can also provide a selfie booth, through which visitors can download their picture as they leave.

Doma G: HW4: Is It Time to Take Down the Mona Lisa?

The Louvre Museum is the world’s largest art museum located in Paris, France. The Mona Lisa created by Leonardo Da Vinci has been gaining so much attention recently. The Louvre Museum contains many artworks, but only the Mona Lisa gallery gains the most attraction which has become a safety hazard. I believe it’s time for the Mona Lisa to be moved to its own space rather than taking it down. According to the article, “80 percent of the visitors are here for the Mona Lisa and most of them leave unhappy.” This is because the place is overcrowded with people and they have difficulty observing the painting. The Mona Lisa is a very popular artwork and there are tons of people who have yet to see it in person, therefore it shouldn’t be taken down. The best alternative is to create a space just for the Mona Lisa and limit the amount of people allowed in. This way everyone can get a close up look at the painting and not have to push each other. The more organized they are, the better the experience will be. Mona Lisa has been voted the world’s most disappointing attraction this year and that should change.
