The week before Thanksgiving break, art and photography students took a field trip and visited The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia. The museum, which opened in 1936, is one of the country’s finest art museums and has spectacular collections. In particular, its collections of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, African Art and Faberge Imperial Easter Eggs are of special note.

Photography students concentrated on photographing the museum’s architecture and collections. Art students additionally were lucky enough to also view a special exhibit of renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly’s work. Chihuly is a cutting edge glass sculptor of great fame and admiration; a chance to see his extraordinary, large installations was a rare treat.
