Summer Art 2001 Student Statements

Chris Manzione

“This was my first time outside of the country. It has been the most inspirational experience of my life. I have learned so much about art, culture, the world and myself that I will never forget. Thank you Professor Cong.”

Amanda Latella

“I had an amazing time! I never learned so much in three weeks. I've come back a changed person.”

Tim Trentacoste

“The country is so rich in tradition but in the same respect contains a great deal of poverty which is the reflection upon the Chinese art of today; an amazing blend of their old culture and tradition with a bit of their modern lifestyle.”

Eric Holden

“I wanted to throw my passport off the top of Yellow Mountain and spend the rest of my life absorbing all the splendor China has to offer. Professor Cong helped me open my eyes to a whole new beautiful world on the other side of ours.”
