U-T San Diego -- In the arts, the key things to watch in 2013 involve individuals who have indelible associations with San Diego: Victoria Hamilton, Derrick Cartwright and Daniel Foster.
Cartwright and Foster have returned, and Hamilton, after 24 years, just left her post as executive director of the City of the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture. (Full Story)
Derrick Cartwright has taught a variety of art history courses at USD, most of them between 1992 and 1998, when he was an Assistant Professor in the department. He has also led major art institutions in Giverny, France, in Hanover, New Hampshire, San Diego, and Seattle before returning to USD in the fall of 2012 to fill a newly created position as Director of University Galleries and Professor of Practice. He is eager to engage students in the practical dimensions of working with art objects and collections as well as in the theoretical stakes of art historical research.
