Julia Kirchmer, Studio/Art History Major, Arts Management Minor, Class of 2013 - “It’s important for an artist to understand what’s come before. To make it new, you have to know what you’re departing from.”
Susan Ashbrook, Art History Faculty - “Effective learning requires engagement with the material. By exploring the work of artists of the past and recent past I hope to bring their accomplishments to life for students in a meaningful way that can inform and enrich their own endeavors.
