Sculpture students participated in the 44th annual Festival of Trees and Traditions at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. Using wire, paper and foam board, students created unique ornaments inspired by Abstract Expressionism. Their work was hung on a cardboard tree and displayed at the museum throughout the event.
The Art Department took a field trip to Hartford, CT and saw several special art exhibits. First, students visited the Hartford Public Library where they received a tour of the building’s permanent artworks and the current exhibit at the Artwalk Gallery. Then students visited the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art where they experienced a guided docent tour of the museum and a self-guided tour of the exhibits, including the annual Festival of Trees and Traditions.
