MFA Visit

I spent the day at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on a field trip with a group of students from the high school where I work. There are 2 popular exhibits at the museum now, Goya and Jamie Wyeth.
I especially liked the Wyeth show, as his subject matter in this exhibit is painted from his environment in Maine. Lots of gulls, ravens, rocks, and even pumpkins fill the canvases. Photography was not allowed in that gallery, unfortunately. The Goya exhibit was interesting but crowded, and I would have liked to have more time on my own to absorb all the information. We only had about 3 hours to explore the museum, so as a chaperone I tried to cover a lot of ground. Overall it was a successful day, as we had a good time and all made it back safely on the big yellow school busses!
