TWU Visual Arts
To Host Italian Night Dinner, Auction
A taste of Italy comes to Texas Woman’s University on
Tuesday, Nov. 9, as the university’s visual arts department
hosts an Italian Night dinner and silent art auction.
The dinner and
auction will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. in the TWU Fine Arts
Building, located at Texas and Oakland streets. Tickets, which
will be available at the door, are $8 for adults and $5 for
children and TWU students. For more information, call (940)
The dinner will
feature a buffet of Italian cuisine, including a variety of
pasta dishes, salads and pizza. The silent art auction will
feature works by TWU students and faculty and will include
paintings, photos, sculpture and more. All proceeds from the
dinner will benefit Delta Phi Delta (the art honor society)
scholarships. Proceeds from the art auction will go to the
artists and to Delta Phi Delta scholarships.
Dr. John Calabrese,
TWU professor of art history, said Italian Night began in
1984 when, after returning from a tour of Italy, he showed
slides of his trip and had a potluck dinner.
“It just got bigger and bigger, and now it’s become
a tradition,” he said.
