History of Art majors and minors and their families are invited to attend the department’s reception for our graduating seniors on Thursday, May 19, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. The event will be held in the atrium of Cohen Memorial Hall on the Peabody campus, and awards will be announced at 3:30 p.m.
Graduates and their families attending the reception are also invited to view the current exhibit in the Fine Arts Gallery near the atrium from noon to 4:00 p.m. British art from Vanderbilt University’s Fine Arts Gallery Collection is the focus of an exhibit titled Four Hundred Years of British Art. This comprehensive survey—the first of its kind in more than two decades to draw on the nearly 300 British objects held by the Gallery—is presented in honor of Robert L. Mode, associate professor of art, who is retiring after forty-six years of teaching art history at Vanderbilt. Much of his research and teaching focused on British art.
The gallery will also be open on Commencement Day (Friday, May 10) from noon to 4 p.m., and Saturday, May 11, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
