All UNC School of Art and Design were invited to submit a one-page abstract to give a 20-minute talk on a topic within the history of art. Six undergraduates presented papers in our Inaugural Art History Symposium held on Friday, March 3. The symposium was competitive, and the jury included UNC alumni Neely Patton, an art history professor and Dean of Academics at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.
