Our Place goes to Central Park!
Wednesday, December 27: 7:30 am – 7 pm
We’ll be in the heart of the best part of NYC, doing a few hours at the AMNH (emphasis on evolution by natural selection), a few hours at the Met (exploring the Classical era so when students return home they’ll understand American neo-classicism esp. architecture; we’ll do the great American landscape painters b/c aesthetics are key to environmental -philosophy and -politics), and in between those forays we’ll enjoy an intro to FL Olmstead, who designed Central Park plus a side of local hero William Cullen Bryant who came up with and pushed the idea to fruition. All this content will done in FEP style, which means experientially w/open group brainstorming and tons of fun.
