Day at the Met


A beautiful day for learning about art!

On a beautiful day in June, one of our Directors (who is a trained art historian), her daughter, and four middle school boys from Ridgefield, CT traveled to New York City to spend a wonderful afternoon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Due to a generous donation to the Foundation by the boys’ parents, the children were able to study how artists have created “portraits” throughout history—from Roman busts made from idealized templates, to scientifically-observed and emulated images during the Renaissance, to analytically interpreted Cubist portraits.
