Since entering the Ph.D. program in Art History at Columbia University together, we’ve been not only colleagues, but also the best of friends. Over the better part of the last decade, we’ve co-presented conference papers, traveled together abroad, and accompanied each other to countless exhibitions; we’ve even co-hosted our birthday parties. Though our superficial differences are many (Midwest vs. Miami; rock vs. techno; beer vs. cocktails…), we share a common vision: making art and its history accessible to broad and diverse audiences. We strongly believe in the universal importance of “learning to look,” as visual art gives form to our past, present, and future. That’s why we decided to create the website “Art History Today” and its podcast, “State of the Arts.” Whether through our blog, our podcast, or our social media accounts, we hope to make art more meaningful for more audiences.
