News Bites: Art History Students Present at Grand Rapids Undergraduate Art History Symposium
Two students in the Art History program at Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) recently had the opportunity to present their research at the fifth annual Grand Rapids Undergraduate Art History Symposium, held at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.
The symposium brought together art history students and faculty from KCAD, Aquinas College, Calvin College, and Grand Valley State University, providing a forum to present scholarly research to peers and professional scholars.

Sarah Lewis, who graduated from the Art History program this spring, gave a presentation titled “Redesigning the Feminine through Chanel and Schiaparelli,” while current Art History student Angela Seckerson gave a presentation titled “Mackintosh, his Flowers, and their Deeper Meaning.” Both presentations were based on papers the students had completed in an Art History seminar class before refining them for the symposium with the help of a faculty mentor.
KCAD Art History faculty members Dr. Karen Carter, Dr. Suzanne Eberle, Anne Norcross and Amanda Sikarskie; General Education Professor Dr. Susanna Engbers, and Librarian Elise Brown also attended the symposium.
