As part of the celebration, the Padnos International Center (PIC) and the GVSU Art Gallery have collected images captured by Lakers studying abroad around the world for the 2020 PIC Pics Study Abroad Photo Contest. Now through September 25th, we invite the GVSU community to vote on their favorite images. The winning photographs will be announced in late September and become part of the GVSU permanent art collection.
