Art Trumps Life

Yesterday night was one of the highlights of the academic semester at the Umbra Institute, and a time for the whole community of Perugia to see just exactly what the students have been doing, at least artistically, the whole semester. In exposition in the Via Bartolo building were the collected works of this semester’s digital photography, frescoe, and drawing classes.

 Students, faculty, staff, and many friends (Italian, American, and other foreigners) came to the opening and walked around looking at subjects as diverse as Renaissance-themed frescoes, charcoal nudes, and stunning photos of Italia, both modern and ancient. Kudos to Professors Philippa Stannard and Bill Pettit, and all of their students.
