The Art department enjoyed an amazing trip to New York City
Twenty nine Strode's College Art students and three members of staff left the rain behind in the UK and headed west to New York where they witnessed the most extreme winter weather ever encountered by the city. This annual trip gave the students the opportunity to take part in an exciting programme of educational visits and to soak up the different cultures that New York has to offer.
The trip was bursting with exciting and artistic activities such as a guided tour of MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) and a guided tour of the Guggenheim Museum, where the students had the opportunity to attend a workshop highlighting the architecture and design of New York’s buildings. This is due to the recent exhibitions of Frank Lloyd Wright the man who designed the Guggenheim. Another highlight was the “top of the rock” skyscraper tour and the Rockefeller design, architecture and sculpture tour which showed the students the impact on Art and culture in midtown Manhattan.
In addition to museums the students visited famous New York landmarks such as Central Park, the Circle line boat tour of the Statue of Liberty, China Town and Little Italy.
