As our spring semester reaches its apex, our students and faculty are working hard to wrap up their artistic masterpieces for the end-of-semester exhibition we call La Mostra (that’s Italian for “The Show”).  Exactly one week from tonight, we’ll be opening the doors of Palazzo Ferretti and welcoming our Cortonesi friends to view the paintings, ceramics, photographs, and ‘zines that our spring students have created.
