Congratulations to the following students who have sent us their recent news:
Katie Feldkamp, a 2017 Art History/History double major, will be attending graduate school abroad this fall. She writes:
I will be attending the University of St. Andrews in Scotland this September for their Museum and Gallery Studies MLitt program. The program is a year-long course that focuses on practical hands-on skills as well as more theoretical coursework and provides students with broad training in all types of museums, galleries and other heritage facilities.
Lisa Simms’ news comes from painting professor Lindsey Dunnagan:
Lisa Simms has been working as a Teaching Artist at Resident Arts in Columbus, MO. She works with teen artists to teach them different painting techniques and they are also working on a large public mural along the MKT trail under Elm Street. The position will come to a close around the end of the summer when the full-time person returns from maternity leave.

Art History grad Kathryn Hodge, who has been a curatorial intern at the St. Louis Art Museum this summer, writes to say she has accepted a part time position with Leslie Hindman Auctioneers as a client services specialist. As she has always been interested in the collecting aspect of art, this is a great move for her. We wish her the best of success!

Over spring break, Emma Shouse (senior Art History major) sent us the following message:
“I will be working towards a Masters of Arts in Fashion Studies at The New School: Parsons Paris in Paris, France. It is a two year program that looks at fashion through an interdisciplinary lens (art history, anthropology, sociology, film studies, design, fashion theory, etc.), which allows for students to find their niche while still having to push themselves to analyze fashion in new ways. Students get access to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris Fashion Week, and numerous other design houses and museums around Paris. Each student is required to complete an internship, and many find placements in design houses, museums, fashion magazines, and retail headquarters… I could not be more thrilled with this program!”
Congratulations, Emma! We look forward to hearing from you next year (send pictures)!
Emma traveled to Iran last summer to study traditional and contemporary Iranian art. Here she is in Esfahan.
