Fifteen students enrolled in ART 4357 American Art traveled with Professor Karen Pope and AAI Assistant Director Dodi Holland to Fort Worth on November 21, 2014, to take advantage of art exhibitions at the Amon Carter, Kimbell Art, and Modern Art museums. In addition to these permanent collections, the Amon Carter’s exhibition, Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River was important to their studies in American Art. The Kimbell’s Impressionist Portraits from the Musee d’Orsay was a must see for any Institute student.
