Celebrating 40 years of OCAD University's Florence Program, showcasing the work of the class of 2013/2014
Opening Reception: Tuesday January 6, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in The Great Hall

Lo Studio Divino unveils the work produced by the 2013/14 graduates from OCAD University's Florence Program.

While approaches to art making drastically differ, they are joined by their beginnings- in a studio in the heart of a sacred and crumbling city. This shared experience follows a forty year trajectory of OCAD University's presence in Florence, Italy, which Lo Studio Divino aims to celebrate.

Since 1974, an annual group of OCAD U art students travel to Florence to study Italian art history and work in a communal studio set amidst a landscape of Renaissance architecture and Tuscan hillside.

It cannot be helped, Florence's impact is persistent.

Traces of her influence may be found here in the works of 2013/14 Florence Program class. Lo Studio Divino is a showcase of creative achievement; it is also a celebration of a cherished city and a special link across borders. If one looks carefully enough, the Ochre hues of Florence or the opaque Venice waters appear; and if lucky, one may hear the lasting tune of cathedral bells and street sounds.
