Info Session: Italy - City Lab: Florence & Milan

Date: Monday, November 4th
Time: 5:00 - 5:50
Location: FMH 218

  • One month spent in Florence and Milan in Summer 2020
  • 8 credits of ART 399* pending approval

Over the course of four weeks, Florence will act as our home and will fuel our thinking about tourism, the nature of place, and of course, art. The trip will include a two-day trip to Milan to experience the trends in contemporary art, design, and fashion as well as day trips within and outside of Florence.  Throughout the program, students will be introduced to people and places who will inspire a complex understanding of the cities’ history, creative and contemporary life. 

Students will explore the city, map those experiences in a variety of ways, and give and take ‘detours’ of less commonly visited places. As they collect information students will develop a personal relationship with an area of the city and use this to inspire their artmaking. 

 City Lab: Florence is directed to students who are majoring or minoring in Art Practice, Graphic Design, and Art History. This course will count for 8 credits. Students can use this credit towards required elective coursework in the Art Practice program
