Robert Kostick, Professor of Graphic Design and Director of the College Honors Program, recently received a scholarship from the Lorenzo de’Medeci Italian International Institute in Florence, Italy, where he spent the summer studying the history of Florence and its vast influence on the birth of the Renaissance movement. This scholarship, established by the KSC Global Education Office in collaboration with LdM, afforded Robert the opportunity to take a hands-on approach to his research of Florentine art, architecture, and design. Lorenzo de’Medici Italian Institute summer scholarships have been awarded to qualifying Keene State College art students in the past.
