Art & Architecture Site Visit to the Vatican Museums

Date Published: Apr. 5, 2017

The students’ penultimate Art and Architecture visit was to the Vatican Museums, one of the greatest (in content and size!) sets of 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 buildings. Students saw many major artworks including the Laocoon, the Belvedere Apollo, the frescoes of Raphael’s Rooms (including the School of Athens) and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
