  • Description

    This collaborative exhibition represents a partnership between the University of Florida International Center and the School of Art + Art History. The UF International Center Global Culture Photo Contest 2016 and Good Things Come in Small Packages will be on display in the Constance and Linton Grinter Gallery of International Art at the University of Florida from November 2 – 30, 2016.

    The UF International Center held the 13th annual Global Culture Photography Contest and judges awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each of the three categories: Study Abroad and Service Learning Students; International Students, Scholars and Employees; and Faculty, Staff and Alumni. Photo entries portray a global theme and contribute to the internationalization of the University of Florida.

    Good Things Come in Small Packages is an international collaborative exhibition exchange between UF SA+AH’s areas of Ceramics and Graphic Design with Wuhan Textile University College of Art’s areas of Design Sculpture (Ceramics) and Graphic Design.  

    “In my role as a Chutian Scholar at Wuhan Textile University College of Art, I co-organized this exhibition of small scale sculptural and vessel objects made primarily of clay,” said Anna Calluori Holcombe, Professor of Ceramics, School of Art + Art History, Gainesville, Florida. “One of the most notable aspects of this exhibition is the wide range of ideas and materials that can be found among the works.  Though the format is small, the pieces have a strong presence.”
