Bureau Valley High School art students in classes 2, 3 and 4 made their annual trip to the Art Institute of Chicago. BVHS Art Instructor Sheila Heth guided the students on a tour of the major public sculptures in the downtown area including “Borders” by Icelandic artist Steinunn Thorarinsdotter, “Agora” by Magdalena Abakanowicz and others by Calder, Picasso, Chagall and Kapoor. While inside the museum, the students studied many styles of art including the newly remodeled Modern Art Wing and the recently refurbished painting titled “Paris Street Scene” by Gustave Callebotte. When students returned to the classroom discussions were held and papers were written that analyzed the artwork the students studied. The students are pictured in front of the “Paris Street Scene.”
