The Ph.D. Program in Art History at the Graduate School of the City University of New York is sponsoring a symposium to honor the life, scholarship, and mentoring of Prof. Marlene S. Park, Ph.D. (1931-2010). Marlene Park was an art historian who specialized in 20th-century American art and was particularly known for her work on American art of the 1930s, art of the New Deal, and public art. She taught at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY for over thirty years and was a member of the faculty of the CUNY Ph.D. Program in Art History for over twenty of those years. As a member of the CUNY Art History doctoral faculty, she taught a variety of courses and mentored and advised countless students, many of whom have emerged as important scholars, educators, and curators in their own right.
The symposium will feature a dozen presenters, all of them former graduate students who studied with Prof. Park. The speakers will include Mary Abell, Michele Cohen, David Dearinger, Russell Flinchum, Ilene S. Fort, Valerie Ann Leeds, Herbert R. Hartel, Jr., Ruth Pasquine, R. Sarah Richardson, Will South, Susan Valdes-Dapena, and James Wechsler. Gerald Markowitz, Distinguished Professor of History at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and William H. Gerdts, Professor Emeritus of Art History at the CUNY Graduate School, were good friends and close colleagues of Prof. Park and will also speak at the symposium.
