Over 50 Barnsley College students and staff recently visited New York City as part of their creative studies.

The trip is organised every year for Art and Design and Music, Media and Performance students to raise their aspirations and allow them to experience a different culture.

The students visited cultural sites including the Museum of Natural History, Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Modern Art to gather information relating to their course for future projects. They also saw iconic buildings such as Grand Central Station, the World Trade Center, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Center and Central Park

Paul Harris, Course Leader and trip organiser, said: “The trip is a great way for students to experience a variety of other cultures. Being able to visit and photograph iconic buildings and recognise scenes from films is a real inspiration and drives the students forward with their work.”
