Historia Artis, the NIU student association for art history majors and art history lovers, held their annual art symposium on April 9, 2013. Topics presented ranged from Frank Lloyd Wright and Maya Revivalism, to Adapting to Modernization and Islam in Malaysia, to A Look at the Portable Arts of Early Byzantium, and several other noteworthy topics.

According to Dr. Helen Nagata, Professor of Art History in the NIU School of Art and faculty advisor to Historia Artis, "The papers were rich and varied, and grouped into panels for what became lively discussions. The faculty were pleased by the sophisticated interpretations and depth of research."

Additionally, Helen notes that they also used the occasion "to congratulate our graduating M.A. candidates and undergraduate majors. It was a good time for all!"

Congratulations to our students!
