VR Study Room for Art History features Solstice Wireless Display Collaboration Station.
Check the slideshow of the Art History Department’s highlights!
Until further notice, the VR Study Room (SAB 106C) is closed due to campus protocols to prevent the spread of Covid-19
Spring 2020: The VR Library made progress with establishing SAB 106C as a student-centered space. All declared Art History students have key card access to the room during all building hours. We are now home to the Art History Association’s weekly meetings. We also successfully began using Solstice Wireless Collaboration Software for student exam review!
Other tools we now support are those developed by ARTstor for studying with their image groups. Look for presentations in your classes, or contact me and I’ll be happy to give you a tutorial.
I look forward to working directly with more students than ever!!
There’s also lots of Art History activity this semester. For the second year we’ll host a Careers in Art History alumni panel to offer students a chance to become more informed about career opportunities and to network.
Art History continues to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the department’s founder, Prof. Hugo Munsterberg, with an Art History Association Symposium on African Art. Prof. Munsterberg tirelessly advocated for teaching world art in the Art History department he founded in 1970. Join us on Thursday, April 6, at 7pm (room TBA). Confirmed speakers include Dr. Christine Mullen Kreamer ’75 of the National Museum of African Art (Smithsonian) and Professor Ikem Okoye of the University of Delaware.

Visual Resources Study Room: Student-Centered Gathering Place
On September 14 we inaugurated what we hope will be an annual Founder’s Day/Welcome Back Event for faculty and art history students.
For Fall 2016, SAB 106C got a facelift with new paint and carpeting. A Founder’s Day Party was held on Wednesday September 14 in honor of Dr. Hugo Munsterberg, whose Centenary the Art History Department is celebrating this year.
The room also boasts a new collaborative study station. The set-up includes new Solstice software that can wirelessly display content from up to four concurrent users, and a 40 in. flat-panel Samsung 4K-UHD TV screen.
Use the collaboration station in SAB 106C to share your own content for:
- Meetings for Group Presentations
- Midterm and Finals Exam Study
- Art History Association and other displine related club meetings

Art History Website Gets a ‘News’ Page
This Spring, websites in the School of Fine and Performing Arts were updated and are now running on a new web management system platform, TerminalFour. We got a chance to add some content, so check out our ‘News’ page frequently for updates! Here’s a screenshot that features a recent event: an unusual talk focusing on Andy Warhol from the perspective of a close relative, his nephew James Warhola. Mr. Warhola is a noted author and illustrator in his own right.
