Artistic New York
New Yorkers frequently refer to their home as the greatest city in the world. Few would argue against its place of importance in terms of travel, culture, art, and commerce. The New York journey will focus on artistic expression, particularly theatre and other forms of performance, and include a sampling of the works of many artists. As a destination of global importance and a metropolitan area with one of the most diverse populations on the planet we will explore the implications of crossing borders through the connections among cultures, the sharing of ideas, and the immigrant experience. Possible destinations range from Ellis Island to Broadway, Harlem to Wall Street, art museums to community centers, and cultural immersions to cooking demonstrations.
