For our first museum tour this new school year, we traveled to the Guggenheim Museum of Art!
Our Art Adventurers viewed the Guggenheim’s Artistic License & Basquiat exhibitions exploring lines, shapes and symbols, oh my!
It was all about abstract modern and contemporary art reviewing
our forms & sculptures with Giacometti;
geometric shapes, lines and patterns with Louise Nevelson; negative space, balance & color with Louise Bourgeois;
and finally, use of symbols, words and emotions with Basquiat.
