What a fantastic day we just had!
Professor Veronique Chagnon-Burke welcomed us at Christie’s this morning and delighted us with a lecture about what is art. We went through the main art movements analyzing some of the big names. From the Classics to Dadaism, we learned how to look at a piece of art. We got our first assignment and headed to the Met museum to put our knowledge into practice. Julie Reiss was waiting there for us and gave us a very interesting tour through the exhibit Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera. We got time to complete our assignment and start looking at art with different eyes. Finally we got lucky enough to have a sunny afternoon so we walked through Central Park to end up contemplating the Tilted Head Sculpture. We had such a great time and got to enjoy art and the city while getting to know each other.
