Description: It is a mandate for post-secondary institutions in
Kentucky to prepare our citizens for success in the
global economy. In recent years, the Hite Art Institute
sought to provide this critical competitive edge by
supporting students and faculty travel to engage far
beyond the University of Louisville campus. It has
sought to promote the understanding of diverse
communities, societies and cultures and to participate
in a global dialogue through field trips for research,
presentation and other scholarly and artistic activities
such as study or exhibition.
This search for knowledge and inspiration stimulates
and deepens both academic learning and professional
contribution. Travel experiences prompt fascinating
new visions and perspectives about natural,
sociological and cultural environments, ideas and
Hite Art Institute faculty and students
share travel experiences they have found provocative,
inspiring, challenging or enlightening through
photographs, videos, and other media from recent Hite sponsored
travel for an exhibition in the Belknap Gallery during
the upcoming Photo Biennial.
