National Art Honor Society Visits Museum of Fine Arts Houston

On Wednesday, January 31 the National Art Honor Society had a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. The NAHS students took a journey through the ages of history in art from the museum’s permanent collection, which covers world cultures dating from antiquity to the present that includes in-depth holdings of American Art, European Paintings, Pre-Columbian and African Gold, Decorative Arts and Design, Photography, Prints and Drawings, Modern and Contemporary Painting and Sculpture and Latin American Art. MFAH was established in 1900 by two professors from Rice University and now is the largest cultural institution in the Southwest Region. The students viewed and discovered the different time periods and styles of art in the Audrey Jones Beck Building, the Caroline Wiess Law Building and the Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden. The students finished up with discussion and photos of art with a picnic lunch at Herman Park.
