50th Anniversary of the Graduate Program in History of Art and Architecture

Founded in 1969, the M.A. in the history of art and architecture at UMass is the only graduate degree program in the field at a public university in New England. We welcome alumni and friends of the department, back to campus to celebrate our 50th anniversary on October 5th! The day will begin with a welcome breakfast and the 20th annual Mark Roskill Symposium, organized by the second year master's degree students. There will be tours of current exhibits at the University Museum of Contemporary Art as well of the new South College building, and a series of break-out workshops where alumni will discuss their work in the field, with time for discussion. The day will conclude with a cocktail party with a photo-booth: a chance to reunite with old friends and colleagues, as well as to make new connections.
