AHSO is an active group of undergraduate students of various academic backgrounds who gather out of their interest in art. We seek to create events that promote awareness in the university and community and also strive to supplement our classroom learning. Recent events have included:
- Field trip to Indianapolis Museum of Art
- Networking activities such as scavenger hunts and "Are You Smarter Than An Art Historian" game
- Career & Internship Forum
- Resume writing workshop
- Film series
- Guests from the Beehive Collective
AHSO is supported by faculty advisor David Parrish. In order to fulfill our mission, the support of the Art & Design faculty is important.
