The Intersection of The Classroom and the Museum, Vassar College / Dinner at the Alumnae House, 4 of 4
April 27, 2018 Wednesday
Susan Kuretsky, a friend and colleague in the Art Department, is retiring this year. The Intersection of Art History Classroom and the Museum is a day-long celebration of Susan and her time at Vassar College. The first part of the event started at 2:30 and began with a talk that Susan gave. She then introduced the panel members as they each gave a presentation. The 4:30 event consisted of talks by: James Mundy, '74 (the year James graduated from Vassar), The Anne Hendricks Bass, Director of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Molly Nesbit '74, Professor of Art at Vassar, Mia M. Mochizuki '93, Associate Professor of Renaissance and Baroque Art History, NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Institute of Fine Arts. Then we all went to the Lehman Loeb Art Center for the opening of the exhibition, Master Class: Northern European Art 1500-1700 from the Permanent Collection, an exhibition celebrating the career of Susan Donahue Kuretsky '63, Professor of Art on the Sarah Gibson Blanding Chair, Vassar College. Then, off to the Alumnae House for dinner. The last two meals I had at the Alumnae House that Main Course catered were pretty good. At this meal, the chicken was dry and pretty much inedible. I visited Cathy (Murphy), at her table. So I photographed this table as well. Everyone is holding up the book that was published in celebration of Susan Kuretsky, consisting of art historical essays by some of Susan's former students. See the previous three entries.
