Indiana University’s Herron School of Art and Design recently completed their three-week long summer course at the Aegean Center. Headed by photography instructor Linda Adele Goodine, and with painting instruction from our own Jun-Pierre Shiozawa (’01), the course culminated in a student exhibition held at our main building. On display was work created in response to their travels in Paros, and included photography, painting, prints, installations, video and mixed media.
Pictured above are Herron students Justin Trap and Aaron Coleman, collaborating on a seven-piece project combining photography and printmaking.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Aegean Center concurrently hosted Indiana University’s anthropology field course “Encountering Modern Greece: Service Learning and Anthropology on the Island of Paros.” Headed by Susan Sutton, Chancellor’s Professor of Anthropology and Associate Dean of IU’s International Programs, the course examines the complexity of modern Greek life through various field activities and service learning projects.
