History of Art and Design Symposium

MassArt is among the few universities that organize annual undergraduate symposia of the history of art and design. The Symposium fosters intellectual inquiry and comprehensive dialogue across disciplines of art practice and art theory, while encouraging innovative art historical research among undergraduate scholars at the College. We recognize and support students in all majors who strive toward artistic and scholarly excellence.
