Besides the many visits to museums and galleries related to art courses offered at the Brooklyn Campus, in the recent past, the art department sponsored visits to Boston and Washington, D.C. Junior-year honors students also traveled to Italy for an interdisciplinary art and history course.
Travel components in the Long Island art department offerings may be either part of an art history or studio course or it may be the entire objective of a course. Art and Architecture in the Western World exposes students to cultural treasures of art in such places as Italy, Greece, Ireland, France, England or the Adriatic. Similarly, art history and some studio courses require students to visit more local and more easily accessible museums and galleries.
