Last night I met Bo Bartlett and Betsy Eby at a Crystal Bridges dinner. They are great American artists who are in town to screen their film, SEE: An Art Road Trip, at Crystal Bridges tonight. Bo’s painting, The Box, was the one we used to measure critical thinking on our field trip study. Bo was very supportive and gave us permission to use the image of his painting. And both he and Betsy were very interested in discussing the study and what we learned.
Pictured above you can see Bo posing with me, Brian Kisida, and Anne Kraybill, who is holding up a copy of the Education Next article featuring The Box. We’re sorry we didn’t have our other co-author, Dan Bowen, with us.
