Last Thursday, February 15, the CSU Department of Art and Art History hosted the annual art history symposium wherein students from across the Department presented their original work in art history. Students who participated included those within and outside of the art history concentration alike. The students presented their work at the Hatton Gallery on Thursday evening to a crowd of students and faculty. This week, the winner of the symposium was announced. Julia Blue Arm, an art education major, won with her work “Purely Indian Painting: Oscar Howe’s Victory Dance.”

In winning the symposium at CSU, Blue Arm won the $100 prize and will represent CSU at the annual Front Range Art History Symposium at Colorado College on April 16.

The Front Range Art History Symposium is a gathering held annually to explore the best scholarship in art history from Universities and Colleges all across the state of Colorado. The Department is thrilled to have Blue Arm represent the CSU Art and Art History program at this year’s event.
