The Graphic Design Area in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design would like to invite you in joining them for the Third Annual Day of Design. The Day of Design takes over the entire ground floor of the Kresge Art Center and gives our Graphic Design Students an opportunity to share everything they have been up to in their design courses.
Interpreting Antiquity to Now through the Lens of Visual Culture recognizes the scholarly achievement of senior undergraduate students studying Art History and Visual Culture in the Department of Art, Art History and Design at Michigan State University.
The 2017 Symposium features six independent research projects by students enrolled in HA 499, Senior Research/Professional Development. As the capstone experience for Art History and Visual Culture majors, HA 499 addresses career planning as well as engages students in the production of a substantial scholarly paper under the guidance of an art history faculty member.
