Last week in New York was the annual meeting of the College Art Association, the national professional organization for artists, designers, and art historians. Truman's Art Department in general, and the Art History program in particular, were very well represented! Four faculty members attended, as well as one current student, and a variety of Art History alumni. The picture above shows some of the alumni who came to a breakfast for Art History students and alumni on Thursday morning of the conference.
The conference was a great chance for faculty, students, and alumni to attend sessions on everything from using social media in the museum world to Egyptology to the 100th anniversary of the 1913 Armory Show to the popular television show "Mad Men". Two alumni also presented papers on their research, and the current student and one of the alumni were selected to work as session assistants for CAA. In addition, with the wide range of museums and galleries in Manhattan, everyone was able to see some great art!
Hope to see you there next year!
