Together with American University’s Alumni Office, the Art History Department will host an Art History Careers Night on Wednesday, February 28th.
The evening will feature a formal Q&A session with four recent Art History graduates who now work in museums and academia, followed by a more informal networking session. The alumni will discuss the strategies they used to gain their positions, how much they use their art-historical training on the job, and advice on what students can do to achieve their own career goals.
The alumni that will be speaking at the event are: Catherine Leonard, Adjunct Professor at Northern Virginia Community College; Catherine Southwick, Curatorial Assistant, National Gallery of Art; Eliza Mullen, Institutional Giving Coordinator, Walters Art Museum; Jennifer Wu, Caroline H. and Thomas S. Royster Fellow and Ph.D. student at University of North Carolina.
The event is free and open to the public. It will run from 6pm-8pm in Katzen 210, with food and a reception to follow. We hope to see you there!
