SPRINGFIELD, MO., Oct. 4, 2016 – Photo exhibition “Study Abroad: The Student View” opens at the Drury on C-Street Gallery with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 7.
The exhibition features photographs by Drury students who have studied abroad during the past year with a Drury or affiliated program. The Drury on C-Street Gallery is located at 233 E. Commercial Street. The opening reception is free to the public with refreshments provided by Café Cusco.
