San Gimignano Orientation Trip

On Sunday Jan 26 we’ll be travelling to the hilltop town of San Gimignano with our newly-arrived students from the Siena Art Institute & Siena School for Liberal Arts.  We’ll have a group lunch together and a guided tour of the city. These are the two contemporary art exhibits we’d be able to see there, by KIKI SMITH & JOSÉ ANTONIO SUÁREZ LONDOÑO organized by Galleria Continua.

This is a little video to give you a glimpse of San Gimignano from above:
