Hello world!

139985_romeTravel and study in Italy with art professor Ellen Wetmore where you will immerse yourself in 2000 years of Italian art. Through visits to the Venice Biennale, the Florence Uffizi, and the Vatican in Rome, students will experience some of Europe’s greatest art treasures. By comparing and contrasting art made for different audiences: religious, public, secular, and the contemporary art market, students will sharpen their understanding of the place of art in historic and contemporary settings. Artists joining the group will create drawings for a European art festival that will cap the tour at the famous Forte Prenostino in Rome. This is a summer 2015 course worth between 3-6 credits.
