TWU Visual Arts To Host Italian Night Dinner, Auction

11/5/04


DENTON — 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) 898-2530.

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.
