Max Libre

Hi guys! My name is Max Libre and I am from Norwalk, CT. I am a senior studying Astronomy, and I am currently in Seattle presenting the work I have done on galaxy evolution at the American Astronomical Society conference! Some of my favorite activities include skiing, skateboarding, and filmmaking. This will be my first art history course at Union and I am super excited! I have lots of family in Sweden, whom I visit every few years and can (mostly!) converse with in Swedish.

Here is a photo of me with the telescope used to collect data for my thesis, as well as a drone shot I took in Scotland this past summer!

My name is Quentin and I am a junior studying Computer Science. My hometown is Philadelphia,¬† however I lived in New Zealand for a little over a year in 2008. My favorite thing to do in NZ was to visit the sheep farms (if you couldn’t tell). I am the captain of the crew team. I have traveled to China in 2011. I am very excited to finally take a course at Union involving the history of art.

Last summer break, I went to Japan with my parents. Japan is a very interesting country with lots of food and great culture. The first picture above is the Fuji mountain. The second and third were taken in Tokyo.

Hi I’m Mitchell! I’m a sophomore, double English and Art History major. I’m super into fashion, music, art, and film and I’m from Niskayuna, NY. I’m the current Arts Editor for The Concordiensis, Co-President of Concert Club, and I have my own radio show with WRUC. I’m super looking forward to learning about Chinese artists through the context of Communist China as well as being exposed to non-Western art. Here’s a pic of me from the Paris mini-term this past December !

Prof. Sheri Lullo

Welcome to the course! While my research focus is on the archaeology of early China, I spent a lot of time in grad school studying modern and contemporary Chinese art so that I could teach this course one day, and now it’s one of my favorites. This is my 8th year teaching at Union. I’m originally from Chicago, but have lived in Hong Kong and China, and spent many years in Pittsburgh for grad school. I also travel to France almost every year to visit family. Above is a photo of me doing a cartwheel in the Forbidden City, Beijing, when I was about your age.
