About The Event

The Cleveland Symposium is one of the longest-running annual art history graduate symposia in the United States, organized by students in the joint program between Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and the Cleveland Museum of Art. This year, nine art history graduate students are presenting research papers on themes of water and art history. Their papers explore water in and around the creation, reception, and circulation of the visual arts and include a wide range of chronological and geographical subjects. To conclude the symposium, Dr. Carolyn Twomey of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is delivering a keynote address.

This program is free and open to the public. Generous support for the symposium is provided by the School of Graduate Studies at CWRU.
