(Aug. 30, 2010)--The UTSA Department of Art and Art History and the UTSA Confucious Institute will host "Images Speak to the World: Today's China," an exhibit of 76 color photos of China's most culturally significant sites. The exhibit is part of FotoSeptiembre, an annual festival of photographic art around the world.

Free and open to the public, the exhibit will run Sept. 1-Oct. 10 in the Arts Building Gallery on the UTSA Main Campus. An opening reception and public presentation featuring six delegates from the China Photographers Association is 6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 1.

"We are honored and proud that UTSA was selected to be the first stop in the United States to host the China Photographers Association exhibit, as they begin a world tour showcasing these amazing photos of their native homeland," said Don Lien, director of the UTSA Confucious Institute. "This exhibition by China's most renowned photographers captures the cultural history and natural beauty of significant sites in the diverse China landscape. The exhibition offers opportunities for audiences to consider unique elements of Chinese traditions in the context of contemporary photography and today's global society."

The UTSA Confucius Institute, officially launched in February 2010, promotes the awareness, understanding and education of Chinese language and culture at UTSA and within the San Antonio community.

The UTSA Art Gallery presents a mix of professionally curated and juried student and faculty exhibitions with an emphasis on larger and more complex projects. The UTSA Satellite Space in the Blue Star arts complex in downtown San Antonio divides programming between monthly curated exhibitions and presentations organized by graduate students in studio art and art history.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 1-4 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, and by appointment.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
