Four Art History students presented last week at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research at the University of Montana in Missoula.

Two of the students presented aspects of their Senior Thesis projects:

Samantha Lyons presented a paper entitled: "Jeff Koons:  Artistic Parody and False Comfort in the Consumer Age".

Cecilia Muruato presented a paper entitled:  'The Mexican Baroque:  Survival of Indigenous Artistic Traditions".

Natalie Hall presented on a project for which she received a Truman State University Student Research Stipend:  "A Byzantine Traveling Icon:  The Hands-On Study of Iconography, Manufacture, and Provenance".

Luke Icenogle presented a paper he wrote originally for ART324 Renaissance Art:  "Masculine Homosocial Identity in Donatello's bronze David"

Congratulations to all four on an outstanding job.
