The Rome Experience 2018

Xavier University and the Department of Art are pleased to present The Rome Experience 2018, an exhibition of mixed media works by Xavier University students; Sheridan Davenport, Claire Feist, Katherine Gemperline, Jensen Healey, Alice Roeding and Daniel Zalla.

The Rome Experience 2018 works represent their weeks-long Italian cultural immersion this past summer in Rome, while also visiting neighboring cities such as Florence, Siena, and Venice through a study abroad course taught by Suzanne Chouteau, Professor in Xavier’s Department of Art. The exhibition is on display August 29-September 21, 2018.

They created art that was inspired by master artists or that was figurative and landscape based. Professor Chouteau explains, “This year marks the 13th exhibition centered around the study of great European art, and this year’s group was especially exciting! The exhibition is a celebratory tradition to commemorate this life-changing experience, and to share it with the community.”
