My favorite part of going to the galleries was seeing all the different possibilities of art and how many things you can do with color. Something important I saw was painting water and how cool it looked.--- Eilyn Gutierrez
What did I think of the art galleries? I liked them, I guess. It just made me think about the intentions of some artists. Like, were their intentions just to make money, or just to make something that's cool to look at, or were the intentions to send a message of some sort to society? It makes me think about what my intentions and motives are to pursue art. --- Destinee A. Calderon
In my opinion the galleries that we visited were really great. I found it really useful and helpful. By getting into Parsons and by visiting the galleries with the people that have the same purpose such as to learn more about art history and taste was a really great experience! --- Marya Trukhan
The trip was amazing! As a class we went to see five different types of galleries. The paintings at those galleries were stunning. The details on the clothing and on the faces were incredibly well done. I was questioning myself. How did these artists get so good at painting? And what did it take for them to get to be so popular? I wish that when I grow up I get to exceed in the way I draw and paint. These people inspire me to get better so that I could surpass them one day. --- Saul Jean Charles
Damien Hirst: The Complete Spot Paintings: These paintings are typical of modern art in that I was thrown completely off balance. But even though I can't admit that I understood it, I did appreciate it. I recently found out in painting class how much I love color, so I can relate to that. Damien Hirst must have an extensive knowledge of color.
Simone Leigh: You Don't Know Where Her Mouth Has Been: I found this exhibition to be a little unsettling, but I think maybe that was her point. Guessing from the title of the exhibition and the pieces I would say that she focuses on the hardships of women, specifically aboriginal or tribal women. I thought it was very interesting.
Natalia Fabia: Punk Rock Rainbow Sparkle: I liked Natalia Fabia's paintings a lot. They were so masterfully done and the subjects were part of the punk rock scene, which is as much a part of our culture as anything else. ----Dana Chaudhury
