Through studying both graphic design and history (dual degrees), I have realized that my passion lies in art criticism and curating. Through evaluating artworks, a greater understanding of other societies, cultures, and events can be drawn. Gathering artworks with unique importance and statements, cultures can come to terms with one another and reach a greater comprehension of what people attribute meaning and why. Through the use of gallery space, anyone can immerse him or herself in a foreign culture and attain sensitivity toward the world. With cultural awareness comes a profound sense of humanity itself, which may lead to a sense of globalization and allow people to have the compassion necessary to truly solve problems both domestic and foreign.
During my time at California University of Pennsylvania, I intend to fulfill requirements for a Bachelors of Science in Graphic Design, a Bachelors of Arts in History, and minors in Art History and Drawing. Following this, I hope to pursue a Masters degree in Art History with a focus in Museum Studies, and possibly even advancing my education to a Doctorate. Through affiliations with museums and galleries along the way, I hope to build a resume strong enough to earn a position as curator at a contemporary art museum. From this position, I hope to acquire influential and meaningful pieces of art from around the world to impart compassion and understanding onto those that visit the gallery space.
