When in Rome

Photography instructor Mel Curtis teaches UW students the fine art of the Jr. Birdman pose while they gather at the Castel Sant’Angelo (Castle of Angels) in Rome during the UW Design in Rome Program. Chris Ozubko, director of the UW School of Art (wearing a black cap in the photo), led the group on a field trip through the neighborhood. The Rome class is still offered as an early fall program in design, art history and photography. Connie Wellnitz was on the trip and she snapped this photo.
