The University of Oregon Art History Student Association (AHSA) is a student-run organization affiliated with the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, based in the new College of Design at Lawrence Hall. We facilitate educational and professional development opportunities for anyone interested in learning about the history of visual arts and material objects, regardless of major field of study.
Our primary goals are to provide exposure to all aspects and eras of art, open opportunities for dialogue, and create a diverse student community through academic and social gatherings. These will include professional development panels, providing students the ability to interact with a variety working professionals and assess future possibilities; a self-run symposium that allows interaction between undergraduates and graduates from across the country; and a tandem art exhibition showcasing the work of University of Oregon students. Throughout the year, we will seek to advocate for the discipline of Art History and student interests within the department throughout campus.
