On Monday, October 17th, students in AP Art History visited the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City as part of their ongoing research of modern art.
The purpose of the trip was to investigate, study, and view works from van Gogh, Picasso, Duchamp, Matisse, and Cezanne. Students were required to complete a firsthand analysis of works previously covered in class and were expected to document their understandings of selected artworks.
