Class Trip to RISD Museum

7

So my 19th Century Modern Art History class had a trip to the Rhode Island School of Design yesterday. I’ve never been anywhere west of Massachusetts so I was really excited. After a 45 minute-ride we got to the school’s museum. Providence is fairly quaint, though less quiet than Worcester. It seemed like a nice place and I would love to visit again. We then went on to view studies by 19th century artists at the Minkoff Center for Prints, Drawings and Photographs.

Thanks to my professor, we were able to view studies by artists like Manet, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas and many others. Seeing these raw sketches in person was very satisfying. Additionally, we were also instructed on the historical and methodical backgrounds of the studies.

After the lesson, we managed to view  the Andy Warhol- stills at the museum, and we were greeted by Bob Dylan’s projected image. LOL. So I decided on re-watching David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook (you know, that scene where Dylan and Nash’s “Girl from the North Country” is playing). But it is always nice to be in an Art History class, all those free museum trips are something I definitely appreciate.

P.S: A more recent David O Russell movie, American Hustle, was actually filmed at the Worcester Art Museum. WAM represent!
