UNIQUE GRADUATE SUMMER SCHOOL OPPORTUNITY IN GLASGOW, SCOTLAND
June 28 – July 9, 2010
Join the Smithsonian-Corcoran M.A. in the History of Decorative Arts for “Mackintosh & the Glasgow Style,” a Summer 2010 graduate course being held at the University of Glasgow.
This two-week summer school offers an exciting opportunity to examine first-hand the work of the Glasgow artist, architect, and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). Utilizing the Mackintosh Collection at the University of Glasgow (the largest single holding of Mackintosh’s work, comprising furniture, decorative art and over 800 drawings, designs and watercolors), and accessing many of the city’s key architectural and heritage sites (including The Hill House, Scotland Street School, House for an Art Lover and Glasgow School of Art), in addition to current Mackintosh research and conservation projects (for instance the Glasgow Museums’ Mackintosh Tearooms project), the summer school offers an in-depth examination of Mackintosh and his contemporaries.
The timetable will be varied and stimulating with lectures, visits, study sessions, architectural tours and films. Teaching will be led by curators and specialists active in the research, presentation and conservation of Mackintosh and his works. Students will have access to the University Library for research.
Open to all post-baccalaureate students. Earn three graduate credits through Corcoran College of Art + Design. Tuition: $4,500 (includes housing on campus). For more information, please contact Peggy Newman (NewmanM@si.edu; 202-633-8629).
