entire BC community is invited and encouraged to participate in joining the
national registry.

Thank you,

Announcing the Art History Student Video Project

April 23, 2012

I am so pleased to tell you about an exciting
campaign we are undertaking to get art history majors involved in creating
short videos of "key" or "iconic" works of art overseas and in the United
States for possible publication in our eTexts and in our websites. Our goal
is to receive 100 short, "you are there" videos (2-3 minutes each) by the
end of the summer. All participating students are entered in a raffle to
win an iPad and will receive a 30% off discount to the Pearson store.
Students whose submissions are accepted for publication receive an
honorarium of $25 per video clip and publication credit. We have two
students working in Italy right now and would love to get more students
working throughout the globe. Click here to see two samples:
* Swarthmore College student at the Palazzo Pubblico
* Temple University student at The Ecstasy of St. Teresa
Project details and instructions are posted on Pearson’s student portal
