On November 2, 80 Hotchkiss Studio Art students and faculty ventured into New York City to view the exhibitions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lower mid artists took inspiration and sketched from various landscape paintings in the American wing, tying to their current studies of the Hudson River School and Romanticism and preparing for a "Connection to Place" in their own landscape paintings. In Ceramics, students studying manifest destiny also enjoyed Landscape painting and took note of the compositions that will inform their current projects. Upper Level Portfolio students spent time in the Modern and Contemporary galleries, as well as in an individual focus of study, while Ceramic students studied ancient and contemporary sculpture on a self-guided tour. All students experienced special exhibits such as Before Yesterday We Could FlyAn Afrofuturist Period Room, Cecily Brown: Death and the Maid, and Grounded in Clay: The Spirit of Pueblo Pottery, reflecting with resonance through drawing and writing in their sketchbooks. Students were excited and inspired to spend time with the Museum's collection of work that held visual mastery and conceptual narrative.
