On Exhibit

Gone to the Dogs Again – I Cani Italiani
July 26th, 2016 - September 16th, 2016
The dogs still have me – this time entirely in Italy.  Everywhere dogs were allowed to go (and you can see the signs that limited them occasionally), I had my camera at the ready.  Some were obviously on their own, and some clearly enjoyed lavish love and care.  Madison Art Collection curator Kathryn Stevens – herself a dog lover – made these selections for you after sifting through way too many choices.
“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does."  Christopher Morley
“Say something idiotic, and nobody but a dog politely wags his tail.”
Virginia Graham
"Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful."  Ann Landers
Hoping you enjoy these shots – Judy Cohen


Upcoming Fall Exhibit

Documenting Our Journeys header showing 2 travel black and white photos

In thematic keeping with International Week (I-Week), the Office International of Programs (OIP) has established an ongoing partnership with the Madison Art Collection's Prism and Prism International Galleries in the Festival Conference and Student Center.  The intent of International Week (I-Week) is to be a truly campus-wide event and one that reflects James Madison University's spirit: "All Together One." 

The International Week theme for 2016 is "DocUmenting Our Journeys" and runs from September 19th-23rd. This year's theme takes into account that the important part of the jouney is YOU. Today we have powerful tools for capturing life around us immediately in the moment and sharing it with the world.  

The Opening Reception for the exhibits will be Thursday, September 22nd, 6:30-7:30PM in Prism Gallery.

Each fall, drawing heavily upon shots taken by study abroad participants and faculty directors, there are exhibits that feature I-Week's focus area.
