UH and MFAH create new program in Latin American art
University of Houston and Museum of Fine Arts Houston embark on joint program in Latin American Art
This is a remarkable opportunity to work with major collections at the MFAH and the ICAA (see post from 12/15/17 about the ICAA).
“Students will have the opportunity to participate in year-long, paid internships with the ICAA. This has been a continuous feature of the UH graduate program in art history since 2009, when the University placed its first intern in the MFAH’s prestigious research center for Latin American and Latino art. With the signing of the memorandum, UH students will now benefit from access to previously restricted resources from the Latin American and Latino art collections and digital archival holdings of the MFAH. Moreover, UH faculty and MFAH staff will use their ongoing innovations in object-based learning for continued collaboration in the burgeoning area. The hope is that this partnership will serve as a model for other museums and research universities across the country.”
