Williamstown: Williams College honors art history graduate students


The Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art, offered in collaboration with the Clark, will host several activities over commencement weekend.

The program’s 12 graduates will present papers at the Graduate Symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, June 6, in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall on the Williams campus. The students will speak for 20 minutes each, with a discussion period following each group of three.

The students will participate in the annual Hooding Ceremony to celebrate their achievements at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, June 7, on the lawn of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute.

Kathleen Morris, the Sylvia and Leonard Marx director of collections and exhibitions at the Clark, will give the keynote address to graduating students and their families. Morris teaches in the graduate program and accompanied the class on a European tour last year.

The events are free and open to the public.
