Honors Art 5 field trip to SF MOMA

The Friday before Halloween LMC's Honors Art 5, and a few extra honors students, passports in order and shots current, journeyed to SF's Museum of Modern Art. We saw works we'd only seen reproductions of, including Diego Rivera, Freda Kahlo, Mark Rothko, Clifford Still, Alexander Calder and many others. Robert Arneson's self portrait was hit with the students, who just had to make photos with it.

Everyone got back in one piece, so we're claiming the trip was a success.

2D design values

Inside Out: Self portraits based on contemporary graffiti and stencil art

LMC art instructor Judi Pettite took advantage of blank plywood construction walls at the college to exhibit her painting students work. Each piece is a stencil based self portrait on 24 x 24 inch plywood, screwed on to the temporary walls. The work, though inspired by Banksy Shepard and Swoon, reflects each students personal story.
