St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts Welcomes Washburn Students

Washburn Academy of Clearwater students visited the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts today. The students received a tour of the traveling exhibit “My Generation, Young Chinese Arts”. This exhibit is on loan from China and features modern Chinese art with some religious and political undertones related to present time China.

The students also took a self-guided tour through the museum’s additional permanent collections. The collections included Hindu and Buddhist art pieces which the students were able to identify as they had studied these cultures earlier in the year.
