Between studying, working, going to galleries, eating and travelling it has been easy to keep busy here in London!
As part of the pilot Media Arts in London Program. I am taking Intermedia and Photographic Currents with photography professor Nicholas Muellner. My internship, or work placement as they call it here, was arranged through the new program as well. As a photography major I couldn’t be happier! I work at a commercial gallery in East London and with an experimental artist who is represented by the gallery. My third class is Drama in the London Theatre so I get to see a performance every week. Plus, with all of the deals through the London Center I get to go to sporting events for discounted prices too even though I'm not in the Sports in the U.K class.
A big part of studying abroad in London is travelling. Since there are no classes on Fridays you have long weekends to hop around Europe. For Spring Break I went to Bern, Switzerland then to Delphi, Greece. The next weekend I went to Dublin for St. Patrick’s day and then off to Stratford the following weekend on a school trip. Yet weekends in London are just as exciting as I continue to find my favorite markets, restaurants, galleries, and pubs.
I’ll be sure to keep you posted with more pictures of people, places, and of course, food!
