Cultural Events Initiative

The Department of Art History seeks to promote shared cultural and intellectual engagement outside of the classroom. Therefore, students enrolled in an art history course are required to attend two departmental or visually based events during this semester and write a response to each. At least one of these events must be sponsored by the Handwerker Gallery or the Department of Art History. See the following list for suggested events, and consult your instructor and course syllabus for submission specifics for each class.  See Documents for a full description of the CEI.
