IB Art Students Visit Washington, D.C.

International Baccalaureate art majors and higher level visual arts students traveled to Washington, D.C. to view artwork at the Hirshhorn Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the National Museum of African Art, the National Museum of the American Indian, and the National Museum of Asian Art.
Students wandered the galleries discovering and documenting works that asked questions, confronted the viewer, elicited emotional responses, and made them wonder about their world. Sketches and formal analyses of artworks were completed in their journals to further IB exam studies.

Highlights included seeing Infinity Rooms by Yayoi Kusama, an exhibition of Philip Guston’s work at the NGA, a stroll through the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden, a rooftop rooster, and of course, Leonardo da Vinci’s Ginevra de’Benci.

It was a great day of walking the National Mall and taking advantage of all that the Smithsonian Institution has to offer.
