Please refer to the plans that you shared with your advisors over the past 2 weeks in order to register for courses — and also remember that you need to register for the art history discussion section at the SAME time that you register for art history classes.


Wednesday Class

Visiting Artist Tiffany Joy Butler!

Tiffany Joy will be speaking to the class about her artwork which challenges notions of heteronormativity, entitlement and superiority through the use of video, performance and internet based projects. Currently living and working in between The Hudson Valley and New York City, Tiffany Joy’s experimental films and projects are greatly influenced by memory, existence and history.
