Students hanging work in gallery

Each spring, Dr. Anna Dempsey and Allison J. Cywin, art history professors directed a group of upperclassmen to execute a professional museum quality exhibition and publication. This capstone experience is a collaborative project whereby students work in teams and apply their academic and professional knowledge to a real world experience.  Students produce a museum quality exhibition and a publication from start to finish. 

Art History graduates have continued their studies in graduate programs and academic positions, entered professions associated with museums, libraries, archives, galleries, interdisciplinary and art institution as well as corporate and commercial related enterprise.
