2016 marks the 50th anniversary for Temple University Rome Campus. To celebrate here in the United States, professors of Temple Rome put together Mostra dei Docenti di which translates to exhibition of teacher (the exhibition of Temple University Rome faculty).
In the exhibition, visitors can admire visual feature works in sculpture, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and architecture.
This exhibit, located in the Tyler School of Art Atrium foyer is just one event in the year-long celebration of the anniversary, and this is the first time Temple Rome faculty artwork is being presented at the same location.
Junior Caitlin Miner finds the exhibit new and refreshing addition to the building saying, “I am Italian and this is interesting to me because normally whatever is up here isn’t necessary relative to my either my culture or what I can understand, so this is pretty cool because I walked immediately up to the blue bubbles over there. I had no idea it was suppose to be architecture, but after reading the sign about it, I was like okay that makes sense. Yeah, it’s really cool. I am a music student, not an art student, so when they put stuff up on our side, it makes it look a lot nicer. It’s really cool.”
The gallery is part of Ciao Philadelphia, a month-long celebration of Italian culture and gives visitors a glimpse of the artwork seen on Temple Rome Campus.
Faculty exhibitors include Cinzia Abbate, Roberto Caracciolo, Lucy Clink, Anita Guerra, Devin Kovach, Katherine Krizek, William Pettit, Roberto Mannino, Liana Miuccio, and Carolina Vaccaro who are all currently in Rome. The event was organized by Susan Moore, Kim Strommen and Shara Wasserman.
