Inspiration Comes Easy in Venice

For IUSB students studying in Italy in 2015, the three days in Venice were three of the most exhilarating days.

Each day, students went to a different contemporary art festival or exhibition before being set loose to shoot photography in beautiful Venice.



IUSB students take a much needed rest at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum.


The featured collections at the Guggenheim were that of Charles Pollock (1902-1988) and his brother, Jackson Pollock (1912-1956).


Peggy Guggenheim is buried in her museum, along with her many pets.

The Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice is a collection from some of the most renowned artists in contemporary art. With this caliber of inspirational material at hand, students had no trouble finding the enthusiasm for exploring their own artistic notions.
