North & West High School Spanish Students Visit Art Institute of Chicago

Students from both North and West High’s upper-level Spanish classes recently had the opportunity to visit the Art Institute of Chicago. This field trip was partially made possible by the Davenport School Foundation’s Great Minds Program. Led by expert docents provided by the museum, students were able to view important works of art from famous Hispanic artists like Diego Velazquez, El Greco, and Diego Rivera, while learning about their historical background and significance. They also saw famous works by Andy Warhol, Matisse, and Van Gogh. Besides the museum, students visited famous landmarks like Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue.  In this photo, student pose underneath Anish Kapoor’s public sculpture “Cloud Gate,” often affectionately referred to as “The Bean.”
