A Bus Full of Gordon Students--Off to New York City

Recently the Art Department embarked on their annual trip to New York City. Art majors (and minors) as well as students from other majors departed campus with door-to-door service to Manhattan. Students visited the Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. "We give students a lot of freedom on the trip," says staff member Amber Primm, an artist and alumnae of Gordon. "There's no strict agenda other than to look at art."

Some students spend the entire day at the Met, some visit both museums, and a few take advantage of a few other nearby galleries the neighborhood provides. "I usually try a new place in the morning and head over to the Met for the afternoon," said Primm, who helped organize the one-day trip. "Last year I checked out the Guggenheium, and this year I visited the small but excellent Frick Collection. We all get to know each other a little better, and I'm able to get reacquainted with my sketchbook." The annual New York City excursion is a day-long trip hosted by the Art Department every February.
