Group_AWalton.pngOver 200 FPS 6th and 7th grade students in the Gifted & Talented Education program participated in a learning experience at Crystal Bridges Art Museum. Students spent museum time on a guided art tour (Looking Back at America), walking the outside art trail, participating in an art class experience, and enjoying lunch provided by the museum staff. Several student groups were able to tour the newly opened Light exhibit, "The Luminist Tradition in American Art," as well as an exhibit on architect Moshe Sadfie's achievement, "The Path to Crystal Bridges." Holt students received a surprise greeting from Alice Walton, benefactor of Crystal Bridges.
