Tuesday November 15, 2022 | ELIZABETH HUMPHREY | Tweed Museum of Art | 6pm on zoom
I use material culture and objects to study acculturation, representation, and North America's diverse histories. As an artist and scholar, my experiences contribute to a greater understanding of and appreciation for art, craftsmanship, and design. My research often focuses on North America in a globalized context, specifically non-Euro American art histories and material culture.
I received my B.A. in Art History and Visual Arts from Bowdoin College and my M.A. in American Material Culture from the Winterthur Program at the University of Delaware. Professional experiences include the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Hirshhorn Museum, and the Winterthur Museum. I am currently a Ph.D. student in Art History at the University of Delaware.
