The eleventh exhibition in conjunction with the Curatorial Practicum course will feature early Colorado women artists researched by graduate students in art history under the direction of Dr. Annette Stott, Professor of Art History, and Dan Jacobs, Director of the Vicki Myhren Gallery and Curator of the University Art Collections, in a two year sequence of courses. A significant portion of the art displayed is on extended loan from the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art as part of a multi-year research partnership.
