News and Events

The department offers a variety of events, including workshops, museum and gallery tours, essay contests, and career panels. Workshops can focus on career-focused internships, getting into graduate school or how to photograph your portfolio. Panel discussions on career options and discussions with alumni who work in the art world are also organized. The essay context is for the best graduate and undergraduate review of the M.F.A. open studio shows, held each November. Any student may enter a review after attending the open studios. The art history faculty judges the essays and a cash prize is awarded to the winners.
