SYNOPSIS
The Fourth Annual Art History Symposium will take place in the UNI Department of Art on Friday, April 4, 2014. The theme of the symposium this year is TELLING TALES: Truth, Lies & Truthiness.

On the evening of the symposium, a distinguished outside juror will deliver a keynote address on a subject related to the symposium theme. In addition, three current UNI students (whose research papers will have been chosen as the top three of those submitted) will present their formal papers (reading aloud with projected images). The juror will present $600 in awards to the three winning students.

All events will take place in the Kamerick Art Building, Room 111. The symposium is free and open to the public.

Two sets of posters (one call for papers, the other an events poster) promoting this year’s symposium were designed by students in Graphic Design 2, as taught by Roy R. Behrens.  Of the posters submitted, the top ones were chosen by art historians Drs. Charles Adelman and Elizabeth Sutton, and department head Jeffery Byrd. It has been decided to publish all five (shown at right) and above.http://www.uni.edu/artdept/behrens.htmlshapeimage_12_link_0
