JOPLIN, MO.--- Missouri Southern State University students get a taste of Italian photography. The photo exhibition "Italia-Unesco" opened at the Spiva Art Gallery on campus today. It's part of the university's Italy semester kickoff. The exhibit features about 70 pieces by 14 renown Italian photographer's highlighting historic cites, monuments, works of art, sculpture, and landscape.
"Most students haven't visited Italy before, but they'll come and they'll get a taste of that country's history and culture, and maybe want to go there themselves," said Dr. Chad Stebbins, Director Institute of International Studies.
The exhibit is free and open to the public until September 6th, then it will be moved to be on display in San Francisco and Reno, Nevada.
