Frutti is an art exhibition that will explore the different ways a change of scenery can impact an artist’s work. Taking place in the Great Hall of OCAD University, 16 artists from across disciplines at OCAD U will be showing the works they produced over the duration of the 2017/18 school year, while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. This event will serve as a social opportunity for students and faculty at OCAD U, and additionally will be open to patrons from outside of the university, providing a networking opportunity to attendees and the artists featured. Frutti will bring together students from multiple disciplines, as well as faculty from different areas of the school, coming together to celebrate the value of study-abroad programs.
