Faculty and Staff Highlights
Silvia Bottinelli gave a talk entitled “Looking Inside. The Home in Italian Art and Visual Culture from the 1940s to the 1970s” on June 25, 2019 at the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome, Italy. The lecture compared artworks with popular media to show forms of negotiation between personal narratives and societal expectations, with particular attention given to artworks created by women and their domestic experiences. Video documentation of the lecture is available here.
Danielle Abrams was commissioned by Paper Monuments, a public art and public history project based in New Orleans, LA, to develop a performance and archive that sheds light on the once segregated “Lincoln Beach” (1954-1963). Learn more about Danielle’s work with Paper Monuments here.

Students explore the sociopolitical implications of cooking, ceramics, and metalwork in a new course that celebrates the spirit of communal dining and powerful art.
