ArtWALK Field Trip success!

So much fun and ART and exploration! Art students had their eyes wide OPEN checking out downtown LA and the many sights/sites. The itinerary included: Cathedral of Our Lady Of Angels (Neo-Gothic!), unfortunately arrived too late to view the interior, then a walk to check out a bronze replica of the George Washington marble statue in Grand Central Park, next we snuck into the Metro Station for a look at mosaics based on Faith Ringgold paintings, and then onto the Disney Concert Hall to be WOWed by Frank Gehry’s deconstructivist architecture, and then the highlight visit to the Broad Contemporary museum (*mostly thanks to IHS art/photo/APAH/yearbook alum Chelsea Trinh*) where students got to view art LIVE by Shirin Neshat, Kara Walker, El Anatsui, Basqiuat, Kusama, Warhol, Lichtenstein and many more! 99 more words
