On Thursday, September 14, Thornton-Donovan School took a trip to the Long Island Museum of American Art to see an exhibit on Lumen Martin Winter.

Winter is a famous artist who also has an important connection to T-D’s campus. He moved to New Rochelle during the 1960’s and bought a house that doubled as his art studio now known as T-D’s own Fleming-Winter House. The Fleming-Winter House, dedicated in part to Winter, has three classrooms each used for various subjects. The school still possesses multiple pieces by Winter himself.

When students first arrived at the museum they were split up into three groups. The first group explored the grounds with a scavenger hunt map as their guide. While exploring the garden, barn, and blacksmith shop, students had to match the pictures they were given to various items spread across those areas.

The second group visited the carriage museum where they learned about the different varieties of carriages. The second group also had a scavenger hunt but this time they had to find a carriage based on different props they were given.

Finally, the third group went to the exhibit to see Winter’s artwork. When first entering the exhibit, many students were extremely surprised to see the mural that used to be in T-D’s cafeteria hanging on the exhibit wall. The mural, named “Fisherman’s Mural”, has been hanging in T-D’s cafeteria for as long as we could remember. The mural was recently transferred to the museum and will return to T-D in a few months.

Students saw how Winter was inspired by New Rochelle in multiple paintings.

“I think it’s really cool to look at all these pieces and know that a lot of them were painted in his house. I mean, I have class in the Fleming-Winter house and I never knew that where I’m sitting is where Lumen Winter created some of his greatest pieces,” says junior Lena Blumberg.
