"Finding Mona Lisa" is a travel group organized by Detroit artist, educator, and entrepreneur, Jocelyn Rainey. While teaching art at Loyola High School, a private school established for boys with behavioral problems, Rainey asked the boys if they wanted to go on a field trip. When they answered in the affirmative, she asked what they wanted to see, and they responded that they wanted to "find the Mona Lisa." Thus, the "Finding Mona Lisa: Urban Students Become Global Scholars" program was born. Their first trip was to Paris, France, and they have since traveled to Madrid, Japan, and Egypt, and are currently planning a trip to China. The exhibition will feature large photographs of the students' travels.
