Tonight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, our students had the opportunity to experience one of the most famous collections of art in the world. Ranging from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and cutting edge contemporary paintings, students were able to peruse the hallowed halls of the museum together to find something that could please everyone!
Throughout the program, we’ve seen 9 musicals, and we can honestly say that none were so charming, heartwarming, and fun as the Musical Theater Showcase tonight. The major class wowed an enthusiastic audience with renditions of songs from Hairspray, Fame, Guys & Dolls, and many more, including crowd favorite: Chicago’s Cell Block Tango. The students had been preparing solos, duets, and group numbers all month, drawing inspiration from multiple trips down to Broadway to study their craft. It sure paid off!
Our first round of exhibitions was tonight and our students did not disappoint! The fashion students displayed their era-inspired creations in collaborative and exciting runway show, before pairing up with their models to receive feedback from the judges. See the action unfold for yourself!
Our film students followed with presentations of their three film projects, in three vastly different genres: silent picture, narrative, and documentary. Our students were transported by the filming, editing, and acting talent that they saw on the big screen!
This past week, many of our students have been exploring New York in their major and minor classes, taking advantage of the learning opportunities the city has to offer!
The Fashion major visited The Museum at FIT to view 100 years of fashion presented by a fashion curator, while the Art History minor visited the Met’s textile conservatory.
The Economics class visited the Federal Reserve of New York and the Math and Engineering students broadened their horizons with a trip to the MoMA!
The Genetics minor explored the depth of diversity at the Museum of Natural History!
