Truman State University Art History alumni Jasmine (Fry) Cloud and Ryan Gregg both presented new research at this year’s Sixteenth Century Studies conference in mid-October. The meeting marked the 50th anniversary of that interdisciplinary organization for scholars of the early modern or Renaissance period. Dr. Cloud, now Associate Professor in the Department of Art & Design at the University of Central Missouri gave her paper–“Early Modern Infrastructure: The Routes and Roads of the Roman Forum”–in a session entitled “The Built Environment of Rome”. Dr. Gregg, department chair of the Department of Art, Design, and Art History at Webster University in St. Louis, presented his research in a session on artistic identity; his paper carried the title “Francesco da Sangallo’s Beard: Artistic Identity in Portraits of Cinquecento Sculptors”. Congratulations to both!
