Curatorial Seminars, funded by our generous donors, are led by History of Art faculty and connect students with museums, galleries, and institutes both on campus and in the area. Each unique seminar engages students in the preparation and execution of exhibitions of works spanning the globe, history, and media. Listed below are some of our most recent Curatorial Seminars.
