Proud of Our Students: Art History Association Symposium 2014

Celebrating Student Research

Last week, the Art History Association of SUNY New Paltz held its 17th annual Art History Symposium, Copy and Paste: The Origin and Appropriation of Artistic Ideas. Great job Art History Assocation and faculty advisor, Prof. Jaclynne Kerner!

From the AHA’s facebook:

“This year’s symposium is a hybrid of 5 student speakers and a keynote – all speaking on different topics connecting to the reuse of artistic ideas and techniques.”

Student Speakers:

Elle Riccardi – “From Ivory to Copper: The Appropriation of Islamic Motifs by Christian Craftsmen”

Rachel Beaudoin – “Pseudo Arabic Inscriptions in Italian Renaissance Painting”

Mary Cooney – “Vincent van Gogh and Japan”

Elaina Manley – “Marcel Duchamp: The Inspiration and Appropriation of Ideas and Styles”

Brianna Rascoe – “The Appropriation of the American Flag”

Keynote Speaker:
Dr. Mrinalini Rajagopalan, Professor at University of Pittsburgh – “What Practical Use is There in These Reproductions?”

The symposium was preceded by a buffet dinner for all the speakers, Art History majors and other students, as well as faculty and Dean of Fine and Performing Arts, Paul Kassel. It was to a great opportunity for faculty and students to interact. The buffet was funded by a College Auxilliary Services grant through the Office of the Dean of Fine and Performing Arts. Dean Kassel also generously provided funds to hire a videographer to record the entire symposium. Watch this space!
