“Is there life after school?” That’s the question to be posed to six Twin Cities arts professionals in a symposium on career opportunities in the arts at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, in 3M Auditorium of Owens Science Hall at the University of St. Thomas.
The symposium, designed for students of art history and other arts-related disciplines, will explore a variety of arts-related careers. Sponsored by the Graduate Program in Art History at St. Thomas, the session is free and open to the public.
Panelists who will share their experiences about pathways to arts-related careers will include: Douglas Fogle, assistant visual curator, Walker Art Center; Bruce Lilly, director, and Kris Wetterlund, director of education, at the Minnesota Museum of American Art; Sheila McGuire, manager of the Museum Guide Program of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; Tom O’Sullivan, curator of art at the Minnesota Historical Society; and Colleen Sheehy, director of education at the University of Minnesota’s Weisman Art Museum.
Kelly Gage and Vanessa Rouseeau, graduate students in art history at St. Thomas, will moderate the discusstion.
