Nov. 8, 2013 - King’s College students who participated in a faculty-led study abroad experience to the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia will display a collection of photographs from their experience during a free public art exhibition from 5-8 p.m., Friday, Nov.15, as part of the Diamond City Art Walk at Barnes and Noble bookstore in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
King’s students who will display photographs at Barnes and Noble are Rose Bulger, Jamie Costello, and Carissa Panzetta. The art exhibit is supported by a grant from the First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association, which also funded the summer short-term study abroad experience, titled “Identity and Place in Slavic Cultures,” and additional community outreach initiatives by King’s College.
King’s faculty members Dr. Beth Admiraal, political science, and Renata Evan, foreign languages, were program directors. As part of the short-term study abroad program, students travelled to numerous cultural sites, including the Auschwitz concentration camp located outside Krakow, the Bratislava Castle on the Danube in Slovakia, and the Jewish Quarter in Prague.
