As an integral part of the internship program, all students participating in Art New York will meet weekly at a colloquium directed by a University of Rochester faculty member. The purpose of the colloquium is to provide an intellectual framework for understanding the operations of the New York art world and to allow students to discuss their experiences in an academic context.
The colloquium will provide students with a structured series of discussions led by a faculty member. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences with each other, and to understand how Art New York fits in with their academic and professional goals. They will receive advice on exhibitions to visit, be assigned relevant readings, and be expected to keep a written record of their experiences that will form part of the assessment package.
