For thirty-three years OCAD's art students have traveled abroad to study in Florence, Italy. Originally the primary focus of the Florence Off-Campus Studies Program was drawing and painting in the figurative tradition. In recent years, this has changed drastically. Students from all areas of the arts are taking part in the Florence Off-Campus Studies, transforming OCAD's Florence studios into a vibrant site of critically engaged contemporary practice.
Since its inception the OCAD Florence Program has provided students with a unique and challenging working environment. The Florence Program offers a facilitated, but ultimately self-directed study approach, affording students the opportunity to work independently in a studio setting. The centre of OCAD's Florence community lies in the studio, located atop an unassuming building near the train station:
Via Nazionale 7, Firenze, Fl, 50123, Italia. For many students, this program is the first opportunity to have a focused studio based practice. Via Nazionale 7, Firenze, FI, 50123, Italia: Recent work from the OCAD Florence Program, is a collection of artistic output from this specific space.
Twelve artists, each a participant in the Florence Program between
2003 and 2007, contribute a wide variety of work to the exhibition, working across varied media; painting, drawing, material arts, installation, book works photography, and video. When looking at this selection of work, the breadth, depth and variation suggests that perhaps its strongest commonality lies in the site of production: the shared studio space in Florence, Italy.

"While honey bees get most of the credit, a considerable amount of agricultural pollination is performed by wild bees. In Toronto, backyard fruits and vegetables are pollinated mostly by wild bees. So, it is a good thing that there are over 350 species living within the GTA" - Bees of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World, City of Toronto
