Experience Italy and China at Photo Exhibition - Closing Reception Aug. 27

Come see Italy and China through the eyes of Lone Star College-CyFair students in the “Confluence: Study Abroad 2009” photo/art exhibition this August at the Bosque Gallery.

The photos and art pieces on display Aug.11 through Aug. 27 represent the students’ study abroad experiences, journeys and explorations around Italy and China. Each photo will include a brief narrative, statement or poem describing the site and situation and general “sense of place.”

The August exhibition highlights LSC-CyFair’s International Studies initiatives and serves to promote future study abroad programs.

This summer, LSC-CyFair had two study abroad programs. Serving as classrooms for their western civilization and world geography classes, were Italian cities like Castallammare de Stabia, Pompeii, Sant’ Agata de’ Goti and Frascati as well as sites in Rome such as the Vatican, the Forum and the Coliseum. Also this summer, an inaugural study abroad group was immersed in Chinese culture while staying at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China, and studying beginning Chinese and world history.

Hear about the students’ adventures at the closing reception Aug. 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Bosque Gallery, located in the Center for the Arts building at 9191 Barker Cypress. All gallery submissions will be up for auction with proceeds to support the LSC-CyFair Study Abroad Scholarship fund.

Lone Star College System will continue to develop the diversity of first-rate Study Abroad Programs with plans for LSC-CyFair to expand programs next May. For information on LSCS Study Abroad programs go to http://www.lonestar.edu/study-abroad.htm.
