An exhibition of student work for the OCAD U Florence Program

Join the most recent cohort of the Florence Program as they share an exhibition of work created while attending this fantastic program abroad.

Meet the students (past and present) from the program and hear about the incredible impact this opportunity has had on their educational experience.

Florence program alumnus Marc O'Brien says it best by stating:
"Being in the Florence program was so critical to my development as an artist, a professional and a human being. Nowhere else can you find such a luscious, educational blend of language, history, culture, autonomy, and family than in the Florence Program. It changed my life. Pure and Simple."
- Marc O'Brien, BDes 2011, Illustration Medal Winner
