The 2021–22 Art History Association officers are making plans for fall meetings and events, collaborating with the Undergraduate organization and the Connections mentorship program to foster community in person and remotely. Officers Ivy Bealyer and Sara Kuba are participating in year-long MCHS internships at The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, and Paris Gilstrap is on the Tallahassee campus, so events and workshops will be arranged to include both remote and face-to-face participants.
The next meeting of the Art History Association will be held Thursday, October 14 at 6 pm on Zoom:
(Waiting room will be active, so if you are new to the group, email Paris Gilstrap to register ahead.)
Here are the graduate Art History Association officers for 2021-22:
Ivy Bealyer is a Museum & Cultural Heritage Studies MA student with a research focus on modern and contemporary art. She aspires to be a curator or to work in publications for a museum or public art agency. In addition to her Ringling internship, she also interns for ArtRepublic Global and manages the Department of Art History Instagram account, @arthistoryfsu. She’s also known for her designs and collaborations for Art History stickers, t-shirts, and tote bags, and she’s an avid skateboarder.
Paris Gilstrap is an Art History MA student working as a TA on the Tallahassee campus. Her major area of study is modern and contemporary art, and she’d like to work as a curator or collections manager in a museum, gallery, or outdoor art space. Her dream vocation is curating Desert X in Palm Springs. Paris traveled in Copenhagen, Paris, and London while working on her undergraduate thesis; in addition to travel she satisfies her creative side with painting and sewing.
Sara Kuba is a Museum & Cultural Heritage Studies MA with a particular interest in accessibility programming and design. She is participating in The Ringling internship this year, along with Ivy and seven other Art History MCHS students.
