Pre-departure to London, Winter Intercession 2016
Monty Python, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull…
Ever since I was a kid, it seems everything I loved and gravitated to came out of British culture. It’s been a lifelong dream to visit London. Today, that dream comes true!
I am a graduate student in the Painting program at SUNY New Paltz. It is thanks to my good fortune of working two internships this past semester, that I was able to raise the funds for this trip. Previously, I’d thought of myself as a person who simply didn’t have the means.
Words cannot adequately express how much I look forward to the total immersion in contemporary art and history that this ancient city has to offer. Having taken many classes previously with Professor Cheng, I am confident that we are in good hands and will get the full spectrum of art.
I am especially looking forward to Tate Modern and the British Museum.
