Joint international exhibition held with the Art Academy of Latvia
From April 9 through 26, 2009, the University held a joint international exhibition with the Art Academy of Latvia.
In this exhibition, which focused on two-dimensional works, the first-floor exhibition hall featured works by the academy's president, which are characterized by flowing brushstrokes and a vivid and bold use of color.
The walls of the second-floor exhibition hall were adorned with magnificent works that express the national character of the Latvians, notable lovers of song and dance, as an introduction to a pictorial-arts project currently underway in Riga as one of the world's largest pictorial arts festivals based on depictions of choral music. As a first step in the exchange between the two schools, works by faculty and students specializing in printmaking of the University's Department of Painting and those from the Department of Design were shown in the second-floor exhibition hall alongside these works from the Art Academy of Latvia.
