ACTC Undergraduate Art History Symposium

The first annual Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) Undergraduate Art History Symposium will be held Saturday, April 14. The event celebrates the exemplary art historical scholarship of students in the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities.

Nick Tuttle, a University of St. Thomas senior, will present his research on “Marian Images in the Art of Hispanic Latin America” at the symposium.

Free and open to the public, the event will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. in Room 102, Visual Arts Building, St. Catherine University.

This is the first time the ACTC Symposium has been a student event – in the past it was a faculty symposium. Students nominated by their departments will present their papers in a rigorous format on par with professional academic conferences.

The symposium affirms the ACTC consortium’s commitment to academic excellence and facilitates scholarly dialogue among art history students and faculty alike. It provides an invitation to experience the intelligence of art.
