Everywhere you turn, there is something new and amazing to see in Florence. For the most recent project, I wandered around the city and did rubbings of interesting signs I found. I ended up with about 25 sheets full of different words, font types, and symbols. It was a cool way to explore the city and discover places I had yet to see. I also included my concentration into the project and did a woodcut of the Uconn crest and fleur de lis combination. I did it to represent the Uconn studio art program in Florence. And, this is just proof that any concentration can study abroad and still "do their thing". Here are some photos of the rubbings, woodcut, and prints!
