How and why does a work of art become prized or venerated? The complex issues surrounding the question of value will be explored at the 2013 Cleveland Symposium. Organized by students in the joint art history and museum studies graduate program of Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Museum of Art, the event will feature new research presented by MA and PhD students from distinguished art history programs across the United States and abroad. Discussions will span a variety of fields within the discipline, including Ancient, Medieval, Early Modern, Contemporary, and Non-Western art.
The symposium, generously sponsored by the CWRU College of Arts and Sciences, Office of Student Affairs, and Friends of Art, is free and open to the public. Stay for one presentation, a session, or the entire day!
