Xavier University and the Department of Art are pleased to present a new exhibition, The Rome Experience 2023, October 20-November 17.

The Rome Experience 2023 is an exhibition of mixed media artworks featuring XU Junior Art Majors Caitlyn Hyland and Coniah Zoogah as well as journals produced by all students in the class. This exhibition represents 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 Professor Suzanne Chouteau. 

The students created artwork that was inspired by master artists or that was figurative, and landscape based. Professor Chouteau explains, “This year marks the 16th exhibition centered around the study of great European art. It is a celebratory tradition to commemorate this life-changing experience and to share it with the community.”

Please join us for the Artists’ Reception on Wednesday, October 25, 4:00-6:00 p.m. to enjoy the art and refreshments!
