“During this Lunch & Learn, Professors Rachel Foulk and John Scott Gray will introduce the Cultural Capitals Study Abroad Program, scheduled for Summer 2016. You will discover the art and culture of Italy, France, and Spain as we plan to travel to four cultural capitals: Rome, Florence, Paris, and Madrid. Each day, we will visit and study monuments, archaeological sites, church, and world-class museums to experience European masterpieces in person. The program will have us asking questions about the religious, political, and social contexts in which masterpieces of art and architecture were created. Highlights of the trip will include the ancient Roman Colosseum, the Vatican & Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo’s David, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, Versailles, the Prado Museum, and more.”
