Through NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Art and Arts Professions, the NYU Venice Summer Studio Art Master’s program began in 1974 and helped to pioneer the university's study abroad programs. Founded by NYU Art Department faculty member and chair Professor Angiola Churchill, the program ran every summer in Venice for 37 years. Blending art theory, history, and practice, the program took advantage of its unique location at the intersection of the ancient and modern worlds.

Beginning May 24 at Steinhardt’s 80WSE Gallery located between West 4th St. and Washington Place, the two-week exhibition will represent a small cross-section of the talent and achievements of NYU's Venice Summer Studio Art graduates.

“I have had the great pleasure of working in the NYU Venice Summer MA in Studio Art program for the past six years,” said David Darts, current chair of the department. “I am dedicated to continuing the study abroad and art education legacy - a blending of theory, history, and art practice at the intersection of the ancient and contemporary worlds - that Professor Angiola Churchill developed and nurtured over the last 37 years.”

Join NYU Steinhardt and its NYU Venice alumni in celebrating and reflecting upon the legacy of Professor Angiola Churchill and the work of these students.
