Art History Alumna at Harvard’s Peabody Museum

Congratulations to Art alumna Allison Meadows (BA Art History 2008, shown above exploring the east coast).  Allison and her family recently let us know that she was just hired as a Curatorial Assistant at Harvard University's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.  Keen readers of the Art Department blog will remember that last year Allison graduated with an MA in Material Anthrpology and Museum Ethnography from Oxford Univeristy.  Wonderful news!

Art Historians Outside the Classroom!

This evening, Tuesday, November 2, three senior Art History majors will present on their experiences last summer outside of the classroom.  Art History majors are all required, during their time at Truman, to engage in Art Historical activity outside the classroom:  a workshop, an internship, study abroad, or lots of other options.  In addition, they present that experience to the campus community as a whole in a symposium organized by the Art History Society.  This evening, Stephanie Barry, Jaime Chambers, and Michelle Kimberlin will talk about their respective internship or study abroad experiences in Kirksville, Texas, and St. Louis–5:30 p.m. in OP2210.  Hope to see you there!
