Event Description:
The Global Student Certificate Program at the Weissman Center for International Business presents a new series of masterclasses in the arts, A Tour of the World in Six Artworks.

This series of 6 masterclasses by art historians will connect world cultures with the fine arts, to see if we can find an alternate way to become globally-accomplished students. For Baruch students who wish to in order to operate at the highest echelons of business and industry, a working knowledge of art history and culture will be indispensable.

The first event in the series is given by Dalila Scruggs, museum educator at the Brooklyn Museum.

"Picturing Freedom: Photographer Augustus Washington's Imaging of a Black Republic"
Dalila Scruggs will focus on a daguerreotype by Augustus Washington. Washington was an African-American photographer and daguerrotypist, and she will discuss photography at its birth, the social conditions that led Washington to emigrate to Liberia rather than live in antebellum America, and portraiture as an art form and business.
