UT Tyler Art Professor Conducts Travel Course to NYC

October 3, 2007

Flatiron Building in New York CityDr. Rachel Sailor, assistant professor of art history at The University of Texas at Tyler, will offer a travel course to New York City where students will study art, architecture and culture, Gary Hatcher, UT Tyler art department chair, announced.

The travel study course, which is open to all UT Tyler students, will be held May 19 – 26, 2008 and may be counted as three undergraduate- or graduate-level semester credit hours.

“This course is a huge opportunity for students who have never been to New York. It will be particularly relevant for those wanting to study art, architecture and culture,” Sailor said. “We will be focusing on the historical and aesthetic monuments in the city in order to more fully understand the development of style and iconography. We will also visit eight museums.”

Sign-up deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 31.
