On Friday, Ms. Pomranky and Mrs. Accardi accompanied 25 seventh and eighth grade St. Mary of the Lake and St. Thomas of Canterbury students to the Art Institute, where we were met by Mr. and Mrs. Manley. 
We were given a special tour of the Van Gogh's Bedrooms exhibit by Ms. Gloria Groom, a curator at the Art Institute. She told the story of Van Gogh's short life and his search for a place to call home. The students enjoyed listening and asking questions about her job as a curator. After our tour, we walked through the Impressionist gallery and made a final stop at Pope Francis's favorite painting: White Crucifixion, by Marc Chagall. It was a one-of-a-kind, delightful experience!
