CAA hosts Barcelona gathering
Alumni from around the world will gather in Barcelona, Spain, from May 19 to 22 to enjoy a weekend of cultural and historical exploration, led by Columbia faculty. The program is one of the Columbia Alumni Association’s signature events.
Highlights of the weekend will include walking tours of Antoni Gaudí’s modern architectural masterpieces and the Gothic and medieval landmarks in the Ciutat Vella, or “old city,” of Barcelona; trips to the Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró museums; a private tour at the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona; and the second CAA International Club Leaders Conference. The events are being organized in conjunction with the Columbia University Club of Spain. Faculty participating include arts dean Carol Becker, economist Xavier Sala-i-Martin, and architect Jorge Otero-Pailos.
