Art & Architecture Site Visit to the Vatican Museums
Date Published: Nov. 2, 2016
This week the students attended their penultimate Art & Architecture visit to the
Vatican Museums, one of the best (and biggest!) art museums in the world. Dr. Robinson
held a shortened class on campus to introduce students to the highlights of the museums,
which prepared students to guide themselves around the building. Students saw major
works, such as the Laocoӧn, the Belvedere Apollo, the frescoes of Raphael’s Rooms—including the Schools of the Athens—and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
