In many ways, this blog is about new beginnings. Having never attempted anything quite like this before, I thought it would be useful to state the goals of this exercise. I wanted to create a platform that allowed students to write for real life situations, that shared knowledge and discovery as it happens, and that served as a medium through which students, scholars, and interested parties could have discussions about the state of scholarship in American Art History. I also wanted to provide my students with opportunities they may not get in a more traditional art history program: writing for a broader audience by reviewing sales, shows, books, and exhibitions. My hope is that this blog will serve a broader community interested in the arts by demonstrating the quality of work students are capable of producing and by encouraging dialog and access to information. Please check back regularly. Thanks for looking.
