Third Graders Visit the Nassau County Museum of Art

The third graders of Robbins Lane visited the Nassau County Museum of Art exibition of "That 80's Show." The artwork displayed showed movement. The students looked at several artists including the work of Keith Haring, an artist they learned about in art class. The students were very excited about the featured “hall of fame” of music and sports memorabilia, including Michael Jackson’s glove, Prince’s fashion, Madonna’s jewelry, and autographed items from the Islanders, Mets and the 1980 Olympic hockey team. The students also got to enjoy the beautiful grounds outside and explored many pieces in the sculpture garden.  It was a fun and enriching trip!
