Empowering the Next Generation of Art History Leadership

May 19 at 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

flyer for Empowering the Next Generation of Art History LeadershipFounded in 1971, the Art History Association is one of SUNY New Paltz’s oldest student clubs. For over fifty years, this organization has focused on creating opportunities for undergraduate students to develop leadership and organizational skills while creating innovative programing for the entire campus community. Most recently, the group’s leaders, in collaboration with Professor Heuer, have founded the annual SUNY New Paltz Undergraduate Art History Symposium, which in a few years has grown to be the largest event of its kind in the United States, featuring nearly one hundred speakers from collegiate institutions across the globe.

Keely Heuer is an Associate Professor of Art History at SUNY New Paltz, where she has served as the campus’ Art History Association faculty liaison for nearly a decade. Dr. Heuer’s research concentrates primarily on the iconography of Greek vase-painting and the interrelations between Greek settlers and the indigenous populations of pre-Roman Italy. She has presented lectures and conference talks on a wide variety of imagery found on vases produced in southern Italy and Sicily in the United States, Europe, and Near East. Her current book project is a comparison of shared iconographic themes in South Italian and Etruscan red-figure vase-painting.
