The Museo de Arte de Ponce and the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus presents the fourth edition of the Art History Symposium, which, on this occasion, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that we are still going through, will be held virtually on the ZOOM platform. The Symposium, focused on the discipline of art history, will be held on Tuesday, May 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Access is free, however, space is limited and requires prior reservation.

“We are very happy to be able to resume the Art History Symposium, which, in 2020, unfortunately, we had to cancel given the circumstances. This year we returned virtually, but with the same objective: to promote the development of the discipline of art history by creating a space for students, professors and professionals in the field of museums and cultural institutions to exchange ideas and exhibit new research in a professional environment, “ said Helena Gómez de Cordoba, curator of the Museo de Arte de Ponce.

The symposium, which provides a much-needed forum for high school students, especially in the current context in which we live, features 20-minute illustrated talks on a wide variety of topics in the discipline of art history, with additional time for debate. This year, the program features seven presentations by students: Jan P. Arroyo Ramos, Patricia Navedo García, Giselle M. Santiago, Paola I. Cintrón Lebrón, Ana Hilda Figueroa de Jesús, Lilliam Buso and Angela G. Elliston Marcos. Also, as a special guest, Professor Mercedes Trelles Hernández, will be presenting a research whose results were published in the journal Visión Doble,of the Art History Program, with the title “La gráfica y la intimidad: El sacrificio de Abrahán de Rembrandt”.

The symposium is coordinated by the Museo de Arte de Ponce and the Department of Art History of the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus. To RSVP to the event you can write to [email protected]
