Visual Arts Majors visit Museums and Schools in Boston and Providence
VA Majors Nick Winstead and Whitney Yuen both sat down recently to discuss their trip to Boston:
Nick: "The Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum was my favorite part of the trip. It was unlike any other museum I have ever been to- such a personal portrait of the collector (Gardner herself). I also really enjoyed our school tour of the School of the Museum of Fine Art Boston. SMFA seemed like a place designed by and for artists- the curriculum is so self driven, it was exciting to see."
Whitney: "The free time at we had at museums surrounded by contemporary art was my favorite part of the trip- particularly the Institute of Contemporary Art. Personally, I loved the Rhode Island School of Art and Design tour. Their facilities and student work were great- I can't believe they have glassblowing!"
