Centre Pompidou

Written by Sydney Beverly ’20, recounting March 18

Today was our second to last day in Paris. Everyone is sad because we have to leave to go back to school soon. But today we went to the Pompidou, which is a modern art museum. Everyone enjoyed looking at the art by various artists from surrealism, Dada, expressionism and many others.

After that, we all had lunch at the Stravinsky Fountain. After the fountain we were free to explore the area around the Pompidou. After we explored we went to Belleville, which has many diverse types of people, to see street art. The street art was beautiful, and I enjoyed seeing the artworks on the buildings. Street art is very costly because people have to pay a fines of hundreds of dollars for getting caught. Our guide, Chloe made everything so interesting!
