A&AH Newsletter 2010

Alumni and friends:

I am writing to extend a warm welcome from the department of art and art history.

We've had a busy year.

Some of the highlights include the tenure and promotion of Professor  Elizabeth Mead and  the recognition of our department's excellence in teaching and leadership. Professor Charles Palermo has received an Alumni Memorial Term Distinguished Associate Professorship, Professor Elizabeth Mead an Alumni Fellowship Award for teaching, and Professor Sibel  Zandi-Sayek was appointed co-director of the Asian Studies initiative.

We also will be saying goodbye to Brad McLemore after five years with the department (see interview). He will be sorely missed.

And as we have come to expect, the extremely high achievements of our students. These include honors projects ,  student curated shows at the Muscralle Museum, numerous individual awards for our studio artists, papers presented at national conferences for our art history students,  and a impressive list of national and international graduate programs  upon graduation.

 Please read about these stories (and more) in our newsletter or better yet, come to our homecoming celebration on Friday October 22, from 4:00-6:00 pm in our "newly renovated foyer" and we will tell you all about them in person.

Keep in touch
