19th Annual Art History Symposium Spotlights Undergraduate Research

March 29, 2009

Six area undergraduate art history students will present their research papers at the Mint Museum of Arts 19th Annual Regional Collegiate Art History Symposium on Sunday, March 29 at 1:00 p.m

Six area undergraduate art history students will present their research papers at the Mint Museum of Art’s 19th Annual Regional Collegiate Art History Symposium on Sunday, March 29 at 1:00 p.m. From ancient Mesoamerican carvings to contemporary photography, the students’ papers focus on works of art from The Mint Museum’s diverse global collections, or artists represented within the collections.   

Since 1990, the Symposium has had the distinction of being one of the country’s few forums that spotlight undergraduate art history research.  After the students present their findings at the program, their research papers will become permanent, bound additions in The Mint Museum’s Library for future research and reference.  Both the program and the reception following are open to the public and free with museum admission.  The Symposium is sponsored by TIAA-CREF.
