On November 14, the Pentucket journalism class and graphic novel class, which are taught by Ms. Lukianov, and drawing classes taught by Mr. Bixby, took a field trip to visit the Peabody Essex Museum. Specifically, we visited the two exhibits It’s Alive” and “XYZT: A Journey in 4 Dimensions.” I am a journalism student, so I decided to create a photo slideshow and ask people questions about their experience at the museum.

Julia Rossi who is a sophomore and fellow journalism classmate, enjoyed the exhibit called “All The Flowers Are For Me.” Rossi stated “that it came as a surprise” which made it even more interesting for her.

Maddie Conover, another student who was at the museum for Mr. Bixby’s drawing class told me that the “XYZT: A Journey in 4 Dimensions” was definitely her favorite exhibit throughout the museum. She said her first reaction was that “it was cool and just kind of like all futuristic.” In one of the separate pieces in the exhibit, wherever one stepped white lines that were projected on the ground would move and become wavy. She said that this was her favorite.

Another journalism student, Grace Giannatsis, told me that she thought it would be more of a “kid thing,” however, “she felt it was more for all people because it is pretty sophisticated, like the technology it uses.” She also said that she would definitely visit the Peabody Essex Museum again.

This field trip showed everyone who visited how advanced technology and museums are becoming, and I think it was amazing how so many students from Pentucket got to experience it.

    I also went on this field trip and enjoyed it as well. My favorite part of the museum was also Julia Rossi’s favorite. The “All The Flowers Are For Me” exhibit was very interesting to me. I liked how the walls projected the intricate patterns of the box in the center of the room, which reflected onto the walls. I also agree with Grace Giannatsis about going there again. I think that this museum changed my idea and perspective on what museums are like and what they showcase

    I was in the group with Mr. Bixby that went to the museum and I really enjoyed it. While my drawing class was there to see “Its alive” we were also given the opportunity to see “xyzt” and I thought it was very interesting. Like stated in your article the technology it used was very complex and “sophisticated.” Every piece of that room had a different way that it worked, but was set up to move to your actions, which was interesting to see and even still I do not fully understand how some parts worked, but I would love to go back to the exhibit.

    Hi Grace! The pictures that you took really caught my attention. The room with the white flower designs looked very interesting to go and experience. I also though it was interesting how people’s initial thoughts were that it was going to be “kidish”, but after experiencing it they really enjoyed it. I think that it is very interesting that students from Pentucket got to experience the advances technology is taking which is shown through the Peabody Essex Museum. This museum is definitely something I would like to go and see after reading this article!

    I am also in drawing class but mine did not get to go. I think that this would’ve been a great field trip. It seems that it was a fun way to see the advance in technology. I think it is good that they were able to go and see it first hand and in a fun way.

    This article was very well written and taught me a lot about the museum that I did not know.
