Fine Arts Featured Story

Professor Gallagher's Drawing Connections class

Students in Professor Sheila Gallagher's "Drawing Connections" class last fall embarked upon a project that involved a real-life mystery: what had happened to a group of pagoda sculptures created a century ago by students in an orphanage in China? Professor Gallagher developed the project along with Reverend Jeremy Clark in the History Department, who assigned to the students in his Chinese history class research papers documenting the process of their research into this question. Professor Gallagher's class would instead create visual expressions mapping their research experience. This novel-worthy story has a surprise ending
