Lucius

Lucius Elliott

Class of 2015

Majors: Art History and English Literature; Minor: French

Favorite part of HAMS & the Art History department: I appreciate, both in the art history department and HAMS, my forced exposure to pieces and movements that I would otherwise ignore or be ignorant of. I also appreciate the trust that the museum and the department place in students to curate a show, which is fairy remarkable if you think about the experience of the ‘real’ curatorial staff.

Virginia

Favorite part of HAMS: having the opportunity to work with people who have a similar appreciation for art, as well as the chance to explore the Johnson collection on a more intimate level. I love that HAMS encourages students to experiment with artistic interpretations, learn from other students, and practice applying what we have learned in class in a more professional setting.

Daniela

Daniela Pimentel

Class of 2016

Favorite part of HAMS: Enjoying the Johnson Museum collections with a group of my peers. Of course, the Johnson encourages students of all fields of study to pull works, but it is really enlightening and fun to explore the wealth of works with others with the shared goal of putting together a great exhibition.
