It was a busy morning in our Versailles on Paper exhibition gallery. We had a visit from students from the Lycée Français de New York (LFNY), thanks to the special planning of their teachers Arthur Plaza and Brandon S. Marshall and to Nicolas L’Hotellier, Director of the Secondary School. We are grateful that they took the time and trouble to come down from New York City.
After a brief tour of the exhibition, the students broke into groups of two and each pair studied an individual object in the gallery, composed a text, and presented a video lecture about that work for their classmates to view. Surprisingly, no one case or subject attracted the most attention but each student gravitated to his or her own specialization.
The Lycée holds the distinction of being one of the most renowned bilingual French schools in North America. The school welcomes students from more than 50 nationalities, giving them an education based on academic excellence and personal growth. It prepares them to become responsible, dynamic citizens, capable of playing an important role in the future of the world.
