Art Museum Field Trip

Our local art museum recently hosted a traveling exhibit of medieval and Renaissance era religious art. Since we are studying the middle ages in our world history studies, this was great timing for us!

Emily’s favorites were probably the sculptures depicting the gruesome deaths of Christian martyrs. Yeah….strange child.

 

We also enjoyed some of the other exhibits.  This terra cotta sculpture exhibit was fun…

In the children’s area, there is an “walk through time” exhibit with reproductions  of art  from ancient times to the present.  I was pleased that Emily recognized many of the masterpieces that we have studied, such as works by Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Kandinsky and Seurat.
