Graduating Masters students in the Williams College/Clark Graduate Program in the History of Art culminate their studies by making public presentations on a wide variety of topics based on their research. The presentations, timed in conjunction with Williams’ 2024 Commencement Weekend, address important topics in the history of art, including the gendering of seventeenth-century sculpture, early cinema and death, Andy Warhol’s computer art during the early years of the AIDS crisis, and more.

Each of the graduating students speaks on their topic for approximately twenty minutes, in groups of three or four, with a discussion following each set of presentations. The presentations culminate the two-year graduate program, jointly administered by Williams and the Clark, which is widely considered one of the nation’s leading art history programs. Its alumni have gone on to become influential scholars and leaders of renowned museums and arts institutions, among other organizations.
