Teaching Pre-Modern European Art in Context

 A seminar on Teaching Pre-modern European Art in Context will be held July 13-15, 2014 at the University of Chicago's Smart Museum of Art. The seminar on "The Uses of Antiquity" will be especially valuable for faculty members who teach art history at institutions without large campus museums or proximity to major art museums.
This seminar was made possible with the generous support of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
