Circolo Show


“The Cornell in Rome art students, together with the advanced painting students from Temple University Rome,  participated on November 6 in a one-night exhibition at the Circolo degli Artisti in Rome.  This lively cultural center hosts the American students once a semester, allowing the Roman public to see their exceptional work, and offering the students the opportunity to exchange ideas and conversation with young Italians and fellow Americans.  Works included individual drawings, photographs, and installations, and a DVD loop compiled by Liana Miuccio and the photo class.   The evening was completed with a DJ and a band.” – Shara Wasserman, Cornell University Professor of Contemporary Art in Rome

The exhibition at the Circolo degli Artisti was very successful, with a large crowd coming to support the artists from both schools.  The red walls of Circolo worked surprisingly well with each of the art student’s installations and created a nice contrast in the room dedicated to the Cornell show.  We are very happy to have such talented art students with us this semester in Rome.
