SACI alumna Danielle Oteri (2001-2002) is leading a retreat, A Creative Odyssey, in Southern Italy this spring (May 25 – June 1, 2015). Danielle will lead daily sessions designed to bring forth new creative expression as well as give experiential classes on the ruins at Paestum, Capri and Punta Licosa.
Danielle is the founder of Feast on History, adjunct professor of art history at Seton Hall University, a Lecturer at the Cloisters, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Program Director of International Center of Medieval Art. She has given talks at Yale University, Princeton University, New England Institute of Art, Fashion Institute of Technology, University of Pittsburgh, New York Institute of Technology and Fordham University.

She is also currently lecturing and leading tours at the Museum of Biblical Art (MoBIA) in NYC for the exhibition Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces from Florence Cathedral. The exhibition’s curator is Timothy Verdon who she had the privilege of meeting during her studies at SACI when Art History instructor, Helen Watterson, invited him as a guest lecturer in her class.
