I attend the conference every year and participate in events of two organizations: Historians of British Art and Public Art Dialogue. Today, I visited the Bard Graduate Center for a discussion with curator and founding director Susan Weber about her research on the English architect and designer William Kent. Earlier, I attended a session on college and university museums and pedagogy. So far, the conference has been superb. I look forward to tomorrow's activities, especially the session on public art and community that I am co-chairing with Greg Mueller from Gustavus Adolphus College.
More to report soon! In case you're interested in reading reports from other conference attendees, read the CAA blogs here.
