Truman State hosts Kansas-Missouri Renaissance Symposium

Truman State art students had the opportunity to learn about the importance and impact Renaissance architecture had on the art world.

The university hosted the Kansas-Missouri Renaissance Symposium, which featured four talks by Art and Architectural Historians about their interdisciplinary research on Florentine and Venetian art and visual culture. The four topics included Architecture of 16th Century Venetian convents, digital mapping and the return of Renaissance geographies, non-linear networks of patronage, and recycling religious paintings.

The Renaissance Symposium is hosted at a different college or university in Kansas or Missouri each year.
