Music / Art Museum Field Trip Ideas   

Georgia Museum of Art

“The Georgia Museum of Art, on the campus of the University of Georgia, in Athens, is both an academic museum and, since 1982, the official art museum of the state of Georgia. The permanent collection consists of American paintings, primarily 19th- and 20th-century; American, European and Asian works on paper; the Samuel H. Kress Study Collection of Italian Renaissance paintings; and growing collections of southern decorative arts and Asian art.”

 

Museum of Arts and Sciences

“From modest beginnings in a single rented room to a state-of-the-art 50,000-square foot facility on a 14-acre campus, the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MAS) represents more than a half-century of community investment in education. Its founders – educators and civic leaders – had a vision: to create a center of academic excellence that would celebrate the intersection of arts and sciences through hands-on activities, stimulate curiosity, and instill a passion for lifelong learning in all those who visit the Museum. Today, that founding vision is more relevant and powerful than ever before.”
