Investigating the art of your contemporaries and seeking direct experiences is an essential component of any critical practice. For two weeks, the classroom is the numerous cultural institutions of New York City. Students explore the visual art offerings in New York, noting especially the interdisciplinary projects that are underrepresented in Baton Rouge, such as installation art, public art, performance, and digital media. Fieldtrips include visits to the Museum of Art and Design, Whitney Museum of American Art, Chelsea Art Galleries, Museum of Modern Art, various artists’ studios, and DIA Beacon.
