The iROC series continues next week when Dr. Maria Minickiello
of the Mount's Office of Online and Adult Learning presents her
doctoral research on Women Environmental Artists:
Unearthing Connections and Context.
Using a feminist lens, historical and contemporary art history,
ecological study, and personal interviews, Maria will explore the
work of contemporary women environmental artists. Her presentation
will include information on ecological frameworks, feminism, and
art history, and will demonstrate how contemporary art, society,
and economics inform, inspire, and influence the work of these
artists. Through profiles and images of women environmental
artists, Maria will provide an opportunity to better understand the
contemporary contexts and challenges influencing this marginalized
group of visual artists.
Maria Minickiello is the Executive Director of Curriculum and
Instruction for Online and Adult Degree Completion Programs at the
Mount. Her presentation will take place on Thursday, October 3, at
4 pm on the main floor of Curtin Memorial Library. Refreshments
will be served. All are welcome.
