History students participate in exclusive curator- and faculty-led seminar at Blanton Museum
Dr. Rosario Granados-Salinas and Prof. Deans-Smith with students at the Blanton Museum.

Earlier this month, students in Prof. Susan Deans-Smith’s "Visual and Material Culture of Colonial Latin America" History seminar enjoyed a special curator-led discussion of the newly opened Art of the Spanish Americas Galleries at the Blanton Museum. Associate Curator Dr. Rosario Granados-Salinas spoke about paintings and objects from the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Collection, with input from Dr. Deans-Smith.

"The appointment of Dr. Granados-Salinas as the Associate Curator of Spanish Colonial Art and the long-term loan of works from the Thoma Collection offers extraordinary possibilities for research into colonial Spanish American art at UT Austin," said Deans-Smith.

Beginning in fall 2017, undergraduate students will have the opportunity to enroll in a special emphasis on Visual and Material Culture of Colonial Latin America as part of the Bridging Disciplines Museum Studies Program.
