"Second Thoughts" an acrylic painting by Ramona Swift, Canadian artist, is one of the most popular pieces in our Garis Gallery of the American West. Every year it inspires students to write a poem in the creative writing program that has been renamed from "Writing in Response to Art" to "Saddle Up and Write." It is taught by Dr. Nathan Brown. The 2014-15 year was its five year anniversary. Titles of the writings include "Kung Fu Goat" "The Goat" "Delicious Can" & "A Goat on a Truck"
Richpointofview — Bronx Zoo Wildlife Photography
In this series of wildlife photography taken at The Bronx Zoo, I captured photographs of numerous wildlife, including birds, bears, and turtles. Zoo’s are always an experience to shoot because their is a wide range of animals, plants that you wouldn’t see normally, especially living in New York City. Hopefully these photos and others will bring me closer to my dreams of shooting for publications.
