BA Candidate - Art In Real Life: Transforming the Landscapes of Art Institutions Through Diversity and Accessibility
Thea is a Gallatin sophomore from Arlington, Virginia, who is designing a concentration that combines her interests in art and community outreach. She is exploring how the knowledge of art history and art-making can enrich the lives of individuals, as well as uplift whole communities. Her main educational and professional goal is to foster accessibility within creative spaces. She is progressing towards a French minor and dreams of working at a Parisian museum one day. Some of her favorite courses include Melissa Turoff's "History of Museums and the Politics of Space," Marygrace Berberian's "Introduction to Art Therapy," Elana Spira's The Literature of Children and Adolescents," and Todd Porterfield's "Reading Linda Nochlin." In her free time, she loves to paint, go thrift shopping, and play ultimate frisbee on NYU’s club team.
