Venice has been a destination for artists around the world since the city was cobbled together on a bunch of mud flats in the Middle Ages. Students at the College of Fine Arts school of visual arts are no exception — each year, art majors make their own pilgrimages to this hotbed of Renaissance art and architecture through BU’s Venice Studio Arts Program. The program offers a fully Venetian experience, from working alongside Italian artists in the print workshop of the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica to taking the vaporetto to the painting studios on the nearby island of Giudecca. At the Scuola, students take classes ranging from woodcut to glassblowing help round out their cultural immersion.

2007 7or the first time Lebanon was present in the Venice Biennale with its own national pavilion. The Venice Biennale is regarded as one of the most important events in the contemporary art calendar. It gave Lebanese artists an opportunity to exhibit their work to the elite of the contemporary art world as well as emphasize that world class artistic practices in Lebanon continue now more than ever.
The space for the Pavilion of Lebanon at the 52nd Venice Biennale was in a vaulted hall that was formerly known as the Birreria Dreher, a XIXth Century industrial site in Venice on Giudecca Island. The island has become a place for alternative culture, particularly in the fields of theatre, dance and visual arts. It has been constantly hosting off site and alternative exhibitions during the Venice Biennale.
