This Tuesday, January 30th from 7-9 PM, SEAD Gallery and Bookshop will be hosting its second class in our SEAD After Dark series, Art Appreciation. “Art History for People in a Hurry” will be a 90-minute overview of human creativity dating back thousands of years. We will explore everything from caves to cathedrals under the guidance of the esteemed Jenn Korolenko, the Curator of Education & Public Programs in the University Art Galleries Department at Texas A&M.
Art history can be traced all the way back to cave paintings dating almost 27,000 years ago. When Paleolithic peoples first began to create art, it was a huge step in abstract thinking that had never been done before. Since then, it has evolved into mediums such as photography and graphic design; art forms that couldn’t have even be dreamed up when human creativity first began to manifest itself. Performance art, conceptual art, and digital art are all examples of striking leaps from when art history first began. Technology and passion have both shaped art into something entirely new and fascinating. We are so excited to walk through all of the different phases of art history from the Stone Age to Impressionism to Postmodernism with Jenn Korolenko and lend an ear to her knowledge and expertise.
Jenn Korolenko is the Curator of Education at Forsyth Galleries, Texas A&M. She holds degrees in studio art and art education and is a working artist herself. Before joining UART at TAMU, Jenn was an Education Associate at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey; her early career was in K-12 classrooms. She has been working and teaching in art museums for over a decade.
