Thanks for a great 2009-2010 season!

The Minnesota chapter of the AIA would like to thank all of our speakers for a wonderful range of talks during this past season - our total attendance was over 800 people! The diverse lectures taught us so much about ways to interpret art and archaeology as well as contemporary issues of preservation and the protection of our shared cultural heritage in Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East and even underwater. We would also like to thank the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Weisman Art Museum and Macalester College for donating lecture space and the University of St Thomas for covering newsletter printing costs. In addition, we thank the Art History departments of the University of St Thomas and Macalester College for collaborating to bring Lothar von Falkenhausen here and for supporting additional lectures for Prof. von Falkenhausen and Donny George. And finally, many, many thanks to the continued support of our members!
Next year we hope to post more photos from our events, and here are a few highlights from this spring’s lectures: Some members with Clash of the Titans swag donated by Warner Bros. for John Hale’s lecture, and scenes from Donny George’s lectures at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and at the University of St. Thomas.
